For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. Romans 1:18-19
God has placed us a world that reveals His divine attributes. In addition, He has given us a conscience that informs us about right and wrong. But, each of us has gone astray into sin. Therefore, God’s wrath is revealed from heaven against us when we suppress the truth He has revealed. In this way, none of us can legitimately stand before Him as a holy God and make excuses for our behavior. Thank God for His mercy and grace displayed in Jesus’ life, substitutionary death and resurrection!
Is there any area of my life where my conscience is bothering me? Am I suppressing the truth of God? Where do I see His eternal power and divine nature?
Lord Jesus, I thank You for saving me from the penalty of my sin and that I am no longer under wrath. I thank You for the blessings of God that are poured out upon me as an expression of Your affection. I know its not by my doing, but by Your grace. I do see Your eternal power and divine nature all around me in the world You’ve made and within the people You love. Today, please help me honor some very special people and complete the tasks that will grow Your kingdom.
