“He Didn’t Stop There”
Romans 2: 4: “Do you think lightly of the riches of His kindness and forbearance and patience, not knowing that the kindness of God leads you to repentance?” St. Paul has just gone through a long litany of things connected with depravity; perverted, unnatural carnal relations being just the first on the list. You name it, it’s there, from wickedness to being disobedient to parents and everything in between. But he doesn’t leave his readers in potential condemnation; He goes on to remind us of the Lord’s ultimate goal for every person: repentance. Thank God Paul didn’t stop with verse three!
