Our Moral State


Romans chapter three gives a stinging indictment of the moral state of humanity. It says that we are corrupt, ignorant, rebellious, and violent. Then it gives the cause of such a sinful state: "There is no fear of God before their eyes," and immediately swings the subject to God's Law ... the cure for the moral dilemma. Psalm 111:10 says, "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments." Therefore, preach that which is the beginning of wisdom. Teach the true character of our Creator, using the Law to show His perfect righteousness. This is what God has used throughout history to bring about true revival. This is what He uses to awaken a lost and dying world. This is what Jesus did to show sinners that they needed a savior. Make sure you imitate Him. There goes another minute. Gone forever. Go share your faith while you still have time.
