Romans 1:18 tells us that the wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all ungodliness. There will be a final day when Jesus returns and the wrath of God will be revealed at that time. Yet this verse says that it is being revealed now. So in what ways do we see the wrath of God revealed?
In the week when the ex-basketball legend Kobe Bryant died and in light of the great outpouring of grief and shock, death is the reminder of how fragile our life is. Indeed we do not hold our own life in our hands – God does. In fact because of the sin of one man Adam, God reveals his judgement against sin through death. But the passage also speaks of the wrath of God against human beings by giving them up to their sinful ways and passions.
