Sermon Manuscript: Romans 2:6 (Part 1)

(This is a section of a manuscript of the first prepared sermon I ever preached, which was in 2009 at the Evangelical Church of Fairport.)

Romans 2:6, “He will render to each one according to his works…”

Everything you do is permanent. This is a fact as basic as our own existence. The fact that you were here at church at 7PM on June 24, 2009 is now irreversible. That is what you were doing and it will forever be the case that that is what you were doing. Yes, I’m aware of the invention of the eraser. But erasing something which you wrote an hour ago does not change the fact that you were writing it an hour ago. Cover-ups, apologies, confessions, self-delusion, erasures, reparations, none of these things removes the permanency of our every action at every moment in our lives. Everything you do is permanent and you are responsible for everything you do.

And that is the teaching of our text: “He will render to each one according to his works.” Everything that you do is permanent and everything that you do is done before the face of God, who will render to each one according to his works. Yes, you, Christian, you will be judged according to your works. Christian, atheist, Buddhist, Muslim, man, woman, child, we will all be judged according to our works, to what we have thought, said and done in this life. “To those who by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honor and immortality, he will give eternal life; but for those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, there will be wrath and fury.”

  1. Hey Ben, I’d really like to re-blog your sermon from Rom. 2:6. Would that work? Thing is, I’d like to do it in a different format than you have here – so if you don’t mind, might I have the entire manuscript so I can break it into 3 or 4 parts? If not, well Happy Holidays and grace be with you and the family, brother.
