Re:Verse reading–Romans 2:1-29 (day four)
The character of God is who He is…the very essence of His being. Verse 4 says that the kindness (one of His character qualities) of God leads you to repentance. Everything about God will draw you to Him…choose any character quality of God and it will inspire worship, lead to obedience, bring a sense of awe or confront with repentance. God is in the business of changing lives. Ezekiel says that God will take our heart of stone and replace it with a heart of flesh. He will change us so we can enter into a right relationship with Him. We are without excuse when we stand before God. How we have responded to His character through obedience will determine the outcome of our relationship with Him. What does your character inspire? Does it lead others to God? Does it lead to repentance? It will if our lives look like Jesus…we will give an accurate picture of the character of God.
