Romans 4 New King James Version (NKJV)
Romans 4 here is talking about the doctrine of Justification by faith that is different than what is taught by Moses and the law he was given to obey. Abraham was the seed from which we all came from and just as Abraham had to have faith in what God said, so we in the New Testament have to obey the same rule the just shall live by faith. It is not by works that we have done or do, but by what Christ did for us on the cross. The whole chapter is given over to the fact rather Jew or Gentile we are all justified by our faith in God’s work done on the cross. He proves it, he observed it, he describes and he applies it to all of us.
Abraham Justified by Faith
What then shall we say that Abraham our father has found according to the flesh? What was Abraham a Hebrew who found as he was seeking some godly pearl and a great price the benefit of Salvation by faith he was pardoned or justified. Not what he did in himself but what God did in and through him.  For if Abraham was justified by works, he has something to boast about, but not before God. When we think it is what we have done that gives us glory we are being deceived for we are born sinners in need of a savior. As people we matter but to know the Lord we are glorified for the simple reason we are His children and not our own. We are His and God give us the ability to glory in who God is in us.  For what does the Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.” What does the Scriptures say is the number one answer to all our questions? Abraham believed had faith and accepted Gods graciousness for he did not know where the Lord was taking him or what was going to happen to him. It is unbelief that we see yet today that prevents people from receiving the promises of God fulfilled in our world. We are seeing some tremendous things done, all because of man’s ability to develop and engineer new things like the internet that is controlled by the ability the mind has to comprehend. We can’t see, but by faith we believe what it is able to do? Totally amazing and it is changing our world as a tool created by man. Yet it is not God and you can get alone without it. Yet we can not get along without Gods love mercy and grace which is ours when we believe in God and become justified as we please the Lord, not please ourselves, but honoring Gods word and obeying Him. Now to him who works, the wages are not counted as grace but as debt. Yes we are all working to stay alive but that does not save our souls and spirits for they need faith in God to act upon God grace. The Souls five senses of Imagination, conscience, memory, reason and affection needs to be guided by the Spirit of God’s love. Our Spirits five senses of worship, reverence, hope, faith and prayer needs to be upon the guidance of the Holy Spirit who draws us closer to Him.
David Celebrates the Same Truth
But to him who does not work but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness, just as David also describes the blessedness of the man to whom God imputes righteousness apart from works: Abraham and David could not expect to earn wages for their hire, we are guilty of sin and the wages of sin is death. But the gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord. God gives us free grace for graces sake not ours. It is in Christ we stand actively, obedient in faith so we are pardoned and saved from sins that hang on like barnacles. David repent of his sin to Bathsheba and killing of her husband and wept bitterly. Peter weep when he denied the Lord at the crucifixion.  God intervened forgave as the cried out for mercy, grace and accepted God’s gift of pardon and justification. It is not what we have done but what Christ did that we are saved and justified as never sinning. The nature of forgiveness is the remission of debit we can’t pay for our crime, God cast this sin behind His back and hides His face from it. Our blessedness is not our innocence or our not having sinned, it is in Christ alone not imputing sin. Romans 4:8 Salvation is totally an act of God’s grace, love and mercy, not based on our works but His work at Calvary. We see pardon people are blessed people for they have a clear state out of debt to others and under then sentence of God redeeming grace. That is the reason our consciences to be alive and working to make us sensitive to wrong we commit so we can ask the Lord for help and He is always wanting us to grow in His love, mercy and grace, not overlooking sin but admitting sins.

"Look at our world and you see we are not improving, but seem to be getting out of hand in so many area of life that only God can restore us to where all is safe and sound. So Paul was Concerned with the Church then and we are concerned with the Church today living in a world of sins shame, knowing it is God we need to show us the way, truth and life."

18 and know His will, and approve the things that are excellent, being instructed out of the law, It’s God’s will, not my will be done. It is what we do for many have knowledge of the word of God, but no action or good works.  Good and bad lie sometimes so close that we can’t see the difference. Lord help us to know the power of enlightenment, so we do not think but do the work of an evangelist. It is so easy to see, desire, take and give and then have to hid our lust. Today the internet has taken the place of Play Boy for lusting is projected on ever sight it seems. We see the better but continue to do the worst is very common today. The Jews yet today teach their children out of the law in School and here in the United States we threw out the bible and pray in 1960’s. Yet Israel still has not accepted the fact Jesus wants to rule and reign today over our lives. 19 and are confident that you yourself are a guide to the blind, a light to those who are in darkness, 20 an instructor of the foolish, a teacher of babes, having the form of knowledge and truth in the law. Yes, a person can read and study the Bible and teach it to their children as a right way and life and not accept it as a personal way, truth and life for everyday living.  The Bible has to make an impression on our lives for it changes behavior and attitudes of our senses, so we glorify the Lord. The Christian life is not a picture but is life in Christ.  Knowledge produces a form of godliness and may deceive a person, but we are producers of righteousness in the purity of the Scriptures, we walk and talk what we believe. It is easy to think we have the secrets to life and can teach others the truth and yet be blind to the truth it needs to change me and my attitude. The Jews could not do what God wanted them to for they thought they were better than the Gentiles. It is so easy to think we know more that the sinner and get fooled by our lack of love, mercy and grace the Lord has for all. Lord help us not to be proud of who we are, but of who You are for You’re the savior of the World.   21 You, therefore, who teach another, do you not teach yourself? You who preach that a man should not steal, do you steal? Lord Help us to not be just words by examples of. What we teach.  Good doctrine needs to produce good doctrine. Note how easy it is to steal and Judas was some one that took from the giving for ministry according to Luke12 4-6. Look at people that are prying on the poor, taking advantage of people. Even the Church taking advantage of attendees. The wealthiest Church in the world has taken advantage of it people and build some very expensive houses of worship. Plus build up a tremendous sum of money for future us. Then we have adultery

Romans 2

Romans 2 Shows we are proven to be sinners and shows how the Jews are guilty of denying the Lord as King
Romans 2 New King James Version (NKJV)
God’s Righteous Judgment
Therefore you are inexcusable, O man, whoever you are who judge, for in whatever you judge another you condemn yourself; for you who judge practice the same things. It is so natural for us to see others in worse shape than we are in when we are all in the same condition for all are sinners that come short of the mercies of God. We can only judge what is true from a lie like you see someone steal anything, it is wrong and they need to be confronted. We are seeing today no one wants to judge anyone and all of society is getting hurt. We have responsibility to make sure when wrong is committed to say something or that something is going to destroy societies safety net, everybody doing their thing for no one wants to correct injustices.   But we know that the judgment of God is according to truth against those who practice such things. God created everything good and He gave us a mind to make choices that are good even though sin was in the garden that they were not supposed to eat. The truth was if you eat your going to die. Sin is doing whatever you want to do with no regard for what is right. It seems like today we can dress in any way we want, Talking trash or swearing without conviction of wrong doing? Drinking whatever you want thinking God created it why not take it. Gambling thinking God is going to bless you with being a winner? Coveting, knowing they don’t need it they have a lot anyway and you should go ahead and take it?  Desiring, lust of others possessions think that you own them and can do whatever you want to do. Taking of substances that destroy the ability to make wise decision is common, as drug is rampant to day. The ability to think getting even is ok and they deserve punishment so you the one to get even. We have a mindset that feels it is ok to bully others, for they deserve it.
There is a considered effort to have a good mental health atmosphere thinking you can have good mental health without knowing or having a personal relationship to God. It is ok to put God out of all public places even our school and places of Business, so we have no morality as we have become Amoral society, being a god into ourselves. And do you think this, O man, you who judge those practicing such things, and doing the same, that you will escape the judgment of God? We all have the ability to know pain and what it does to the body but look at the suffering that goes on in the souls imagination, reason, conscience, memory and affection and how the Spirits reverence to worship and have faith and hope in God to answer our prayers, is not heard for the simple reason we are so interested in pleasing our bodies eyes, ears, nose, mouth and feeling we become infidels, saying I am god or I do not need God.  Or do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance? Here they are Jews who were blessed first for God called them out of bondage. It seems like those blest the most have no regard for the Lord for they get wealthier taking advantage of opportunities that are not biblical. We have people that are taking advantage of one another for they are smarter have understand and knowledge with no wisdom of Godliness. Are we not seeing Face Book, Amazon, Google and Microsoft beginning to control our world, with no sense of right, but know the power of wrong doings, controlling people. Notice God leads them to repentance, for He want justice to rule and reign. He does not drive us but is leading us into green pastures that is something that gives on good mental health regardless of the circumstance. But in accordance with your hardness and your impenitent heart you are treasuring up for yourself wrath in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God, who “will render to each one according to his deeds”: What a provoking thought bring God wrath upon us. It is our hearts that. become harden which is the ruin of sinners. We are led by sin by seeing, desiring, taking and giving that which is wrong. Our hearts here is your thinking is not Godly but just the opposite devilish and evil. We treasure evils wrong and even clout over what we do wrong. I have heard them many times as a Chaplain for 13 years and apart of jail ministry since 1955. Prisoners like to brag about what they did, not that they were caught.
