Romans 2 New Living Translation (NLT)
God’s Judgment of Sin
4 Don’t you see how wonderfully kind, tolerant, and patient God is with you? Does this mean nothing to you?
Can’t you see that his kindness is intended to turn you from your sin?
In his letter to the Romans Paul brought the Truth of Jesus Christ and God’s love for us in “that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us ….” Romans 5:8 and he freely communicated that even in God’s patient love and kindness He has a limit after which we come to judgment of all the things we have done in this life. It is really amazing when you think about it – the Creator of all of Heaven and Earth owns everything, lacks nothing to completeness, needs nothing from us yet his one desire is for a personal relationship with each of us to share our lives. This relationship was so valuable for him that he allowed Jesus to be born in Human flesh and live among us a life of perfect submission to God, witness Gods love in his life to His friends and die a criminals death so that God could bridge the Gap between a sin man and a Holy God that our relationship with Him would be possible and freely open to all who accept Jesus Christ as that savior and path to God. Peter said in Acts 4:12 “ there is no other name given by God under Heaven whereby we can be saved”. It is a great Truth of a wonderful Love but it does have a time limit for we are only here for a short time to take the offer of the gift of Grace in God’s Love for us thru Jesus Christ.
