This week in Bible Study we will continue our study of the book of Romans.  I am very excited about our study of this letter that was written by the Apostle Paul to the church in Rome.  In this letter we find many verses that are commonly quoted by Christians when evangelizing as well as in praise and worship music.  In Romans we find:  1. the righteous shall walk (live) by faith (Rom 1:17), 2. all have sinned and falling short of the glory of God (3:23),  3. if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and you believe in your heart that God hath raised him from the dead, you shall be saved (Rom 10:9), 4. how beautiful are the feet of those who carry the good news (10:15), 5. be transformed by the renewing of your mind (12:2), 6. if God be for us, who can be against us (8:31), 7. in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us (8:37), 8. there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus (8:1), and 9. therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship (12:1)

Our lesson topic/title for the week is:  ”God’s Standards, Part II”

We will continue our study of God’s impartiality in judging all sin.

The scripture of the week that we will be reading and focusing is Romans 2:17-29.

Here is Bible Study question of the week:

In what ways to you seek praise from humans, and in what ways from God?  How would seeking praise only from God affect your actions at home or work?  Please feel free to use scriptures (passages) from the Bible if you are able.  You can submit your responses below.

    One can seek one’s praise from God rather than from man by: 1) Not letting one’s right hand know what one’s left hand is doing when doing charitable deeds, and 2) praying in one’s closet rather than on the street where everyone can see him praying.

    In other words, with true humility and lack of self-interest, do one’s service to God and man without even a thought of reward from one’s fellow man, let alone seeking it. Do not call attention to oneself when one is doing good. Do not be preoccupied with making a name for oneself; make a name for God. It is He who wishes to be known by everyone through our actions.

    On the other hand, perhaps even seeking praise from God is less virtuous than just doing His will and trusting in His grace and bounty, His justice and loving kindness.

    Can we ever really do anything that is worthy of praise from God, if so, what is it?
