This week we continue to look at Paul’s criticism of the Jews. We see that God does not show partiality to anyone. As we saw last week, God will give to all men according to what they have done. If the Jews were to continue in their sin, they could not trust in their circumcision or in their having the Law or in their relation to Abraham.
We must learn from this, that if we are living in sin, we will be judged for it. God will not give us special treatment because we belong to a church or because we once made a profession of faith. God does not treat any group of people differently; he does not show favoritism to anyone. If we live in sin we will be judged for our sin. If we trust in Christ and follow Him then His righteousness will be credited to us and we will be saved.
