We (Not They) Are So Guilty
Today’s most spectacular passage in Romans has been bullied upon the
heads of many, while the application is intended to be made closer to home.
The Bible always applies best to the reader. We can argue about who is
“most under God’s wrath”, but the end is the same: we are under God’s
wrath. This dark text today on humankind’s failures sounds like a shadowy
tunnel, only to brighten all the more when the “but he died for us” takes
over. Let’s assure our faith in Jesus Christ and then live humbly, and grateful,
before the Lord.
