What is God Saying?

Do you ever get to a place in the Bible and wonder, "Does any of this apply to me?" If so,

you are not alone. But the answer is yes, the Bible applies to you today. Invite a friend, and let's learn about it together.


Romans 3:1-20

1 What advantage, then, is there in being a Jew, or what value is there in circumcision? 2 Much in every way! First of all, the Jews have been entrusted with the very words of God. 3 What if some were unfaithful? Will their unfaithfulness nullify God’s faithfulness? 4 Not at all! Let God be true, and every human being a liar. As it is written: “So that you may be proved right when you speak and prevail when you judge.” 5 But if our unrighteousness brings out God’s righteousness more clearly, what shall we say? That God is unjust in bringing His wrath on us? (I am using a human argument.) 6 Certainly not! If that were so, how could God judge the world? 7 Someone might argue, “If my falsehood enhances God’s truthfulness and so increases His glory, why am I still condemned as a sinner?” 8 Why not say - as some slanderously claim that we say - “Let us do evil that good may result”? Their condemnation is just! 9 What shall we conclude then? Do we have any advantage? Not at all! For we have already made the charge that Jews and Gentiles alike are all under the power of sin. 10 As it is written: “There is no one righteous, not even one; 11 there is no one who understands; there is no one who seeks God. 12 All have turned away, they have together become worthless; there is no one who does good, not even one.” 13 “Their throats are open graves; their tongues practice deceit.” “The poison of vipers is on their lips.” 14  “Their mouths are full of cursing and bitterness.” 15 “Their feet are swift to shed blood; 16 ruin and misery mark their ways, 17 and the way of peace they do not know.” 18 “There is no fear of God before their eyes.” 19 Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be silenced and the whole world held accountable to God. 20 Therefore no one will be declared righteous in God’s sight by the works of the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of our sin.

For Families with Kids

1. Read Romans 3:1-20 together.

2. How many questions are asked by Paul in this reading? As we learn about God, we’ll always have questions; questions can be good to help our faith. What questions are in your heart about God? Share them together.

3. Paul talks about Jews and Greeks. Is one better than the other? What are both people under (see v. 9)?

4. If both Jews and Greeks are under the same thing, does this include you and me? Are we better than someone who does not go to church?
