"Being filled with all unrighteousness..."
Text: Romans 1:29
THE DANGER OF A HEART AND MIND NOT FILLED WITH GOD
There is grave danger afoot when a man’s heart and mind are not filled with God and His truths! Paul warned of this in the following text. Other things will seek to fill the heart and mind. The apostle Paul made a list of things that will attempt to fill the void in man’s heart and mind. (This list is not meant to be exhaustive. This was listed at random, in no particular order).
1. All unrighteousness
2. Sexual immorality
6. Full of envy
13. Haters of God
17. Inventors of evil things
18. Disobedient to parents
THE UNREPENTANT WICKED
Paul was most candid when he drew up this list of things that can fill the heart and mind! He went on to make an even more startling statement about those who persisted in their wickedness.
“Who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who
practise such things are deserving of death, not only do the same
but also approve of those who practise them.”
The unrepentant wicked know about the righteous judgment of God. They know that those who continue in sin are deserving of death! Their wickedness is evident in their lack of repentance. Worse, they actually encourage people to sin.
