In our study of Romans 1 last week, we considered the overtly immoral—those who have turned away & are walking away from God. Within that study, we reflected on parallels in the parable of the prodigal—the son who turned away from his Father, and the Father who had to let go of His son and then welcomed him back with open arms.
This week, we turned our attention to the intentionally moral and the really religious—those who think they they are righteous—and therefore, do not see their need for repentance. We reflected again on the parable of the prodigal and considered the Father’s other son. This son’s self-righteous judgmental attitude needed to be addressed by his Father.
These two groups mistakenly compare themselves to others to determine their self-righteousness rather than comparing themselves with Christ and seeing their need for His righteousness.
Watch our study from Sunday as we learned how important it is to keep our eyes on Jesus, lest we’re tempted to look down on others.
