Romans 3 was really good too! It talked about some really important things! Also don't forget that we have bible study tonight at 6:30 and we will be covering Acts 25- Romans 3!
The first part of the chapter talks about when people are lying to you, you can always trust and count on God because he will always tell you the truth. Then the people said that their sinfulness was okay because it shows how not to act and it shows how righteous God is. (Verse 5 says this). Has there ever been a time when you gave in to peer pressure? If so how did you feel afterwords?
The second part talks about how everyone sins!
"No one is righteous- not even one. (11) No one is truly wise, no one is seeking God. (12) All have turned away; all have become useless. No one does good, not a single one. (13) Their talk is foul, like the stench from an open grave. Their tongs are filled with lies. Snake venom drips from their lips, (14) Their mouth are full of cursing and bitterness. (15) They rush to commit murder. (16) Destruction and misery always follow them. (17) They don't know where to find peace. (18) They have no fear of God at all." (Romans 3:10-18 NLT). This big chunk of scripture is talking about the types of bad things we as people do. It is also talking about what will happen if we continue to do these bad things.
The last part of the chapter talked about how we can be forgiven. To be forgiven we must believe in what Jesus did for us. If it was not for Jesus we would still be getting punished because of our sins. Because of what Jesus did for us we can be with God forever after we accepted him. We are made right with God by placing our faith in Jesus Christ, and this is true for everyone who believes no matter who we are. (Romans 3:22 NLT). What was it like for you the first time you completely trusted God with something?
