Paul’s letter to the Christians in Rome is addressed to … “the called of Jesus Christ … beloved of God, called to be saints” (Romans 1:6-7) He says to them, “we have received grace and apostleship for obedience to the faith” (Romans 1:5) “The Romans Road” is famous for laying out the Plan of Salvation for Christians. However, for Christians who are NOT obedient to the faith … “The Romans Road” lays out the Plan of Damnation for Christians! Paul gives MANY WARNINGS to the Christians in Rome … Romans 1: • The righteousness of God is revealed: “The just shall live by faith” • The wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness • Knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things (a long list of sins) are deserving of death Romans 2: • You who judge those practicing such things (a long list of sins), and doing the same, (do you think) that you will escape the judgment of God? • To those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness — indignation and wrath, tribulation and anguish, on every soul of man who does evil For there is no partiality with God. Romans 6: • Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? Certainly not! • We should no longer be slaves of sin • Reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin • Do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts • Do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin • Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Certainly not! • You are that one’s slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or … • Present your members as slaves of righteousness for holiness • The end of those things (practicing sin) is death • For the wages of sin is death Romans 8: • No condemnation to those who walk according to the Spirit • The righteous requirement of the law is fulfilled by walking according to the Spirit • To be carnally minded is death • The carnal mind is enmity against God • Those who are in the flesh cannot please God • If you live according to the flesh you will die • If by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live • For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God • We are children of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him Romans 11: • Do not be haughty, but fear. For if God did not spare the natural branches (the Jews), He may not spare you either. Therefore consider the goodness and severity of God: on those who fell, severity; but toward you, goodness, if you continue in His goodness. Otherwise you also will be cut off. .
