Sermons about Ingratitude
When you read the Gospels you cannot help but notice the immediacy in the stories of those saved and healed by Christ. Jesus heals/restores/equips a person and IMMEDIATELY this person is a follower and telling others about Jesus. Do we tell the world about the grace bestowed on our lives? We received the greatest gift, but are we telling others? When God touched and changed you, you cannot help but to tell others what God has done for you. If this is not the case you'd want to ask God if your conversion is a true conversion.
There is a fundamental, core attitudinal problem that pervades the human race - an attitude of ingratitude. In our sinfulness, we fail to acknowledge God or to give him thanks. The lack of thanksgiving is supremely indicative of the depths of our sinfulness and depravity.
Eric Derksen looks at the pitfalls of ingratitude.
In this section of Romans, Paul begins to demonstrate our need for the gospel. He points to God's wrath, which is God's righteous antagonism to that which is unholy and unrighteous. He proves our own unrighteousness, showing that we are many times over without excuse before God. Paul shows that our sin is a form of idolatry, giving to something else the worship and service and love that God deserves. In light of this proof of our sin, the provision of Christ as our Savior shines as a glorious and welcome hope. He came to redeem us from sin, to give us his righteousness in place of our sin and guilt. What a glorious gift this is!
