Re: Verse reading–Romans 2:1-29 (day three)
“As it is written: ‘God’s name is blasphemed among the Gentiles because of you.'” That the character and behavior of Christians would invite the larger society to conclude God doesn’t really matter much is quite a serious charge. And yet, Paul declares, that’s exactly the circumstance we find ourselves in when what we say becomes disconnected from how we live. If we claim devotion to Christ, do we then organize our daily lives in the same way he did? Paul says earlier in Romans that a person can come to know of God’s existence by considering the physical realm. What can a person come to know of God’s personality by considering the way you live?
