NOTE: The questions for this week’s study were written by Dee Graves.
- As you prepare your heart for study, know that God desires to reveal Himself to you, and He has given you His Holy Spirit to guide you into truth. Before you open in prayer, consider Jeremiah 9:23-24. “This is what the Lord declares: ‘Let not the wise man boast of his wisdom or the strong man boast of his strength or the rich man boast of his riches, but let him who boasts boast about this: that he understands and knows Me, that I am the Lord, who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth, for in these I delight,’ declares the Lord.” Pray for this understanding and knowledge of God with the Holy Spirit as your guide.
- Read Romans 2:1-3
- What does it mean to “pass judgment on someone else?” (Romans 2:1-3)
- Why does Paul tell us that when we pass judgment on others we condemn ourselves? What do you think this means?
- When Paul’s letter was read aloud to the Roman church, there were likely some listeners who were nodding their head at the condemnation of idol worshipers, homosexual practices, and violent people. What do you think their reaction was to Paul’s announcement that they were guilty of sins that God took just as seriously as the things listed in chapter 1?
- Is there any sin so insignificant that God will overlook it?
