Daily Fountain 2017 - Objection Overruled

Tuesday February 14

Bible Reading:     Romans 3: 1 - 8

Topic:         Objection Overruled

Our topic today is a normal language in a Court of Law, whenever a Lawyer objects to an issue, if the Judge is not satisfied with the objection of the Lawyer he will usually say "Objection overruled" - that is, the Lawyer's objection is rejected.

In our text we see the objections of the Jews to the Gospel and the response of God through Paul to the objections.

There are three objections raised by the Jews that they don't need the Gospel:

1.      The advantage of circumcision (v. 1) - an objection that was overruled in v. 2
2.      God's Covenant with the Jews is not annulled by the Gospel (v. 3) which is overruled in v. 4
3.      Our sin is profitable because it magnifies the grace of God (v. 5) an argument overruled by the fact that God is a Sound and Sincere Judge.

All arguments and objections of men to justify sinning and non-service to Him are all already overruled.

What are your objections to the Word of God?
They are all overruled.

May God give you the humility to follow Him in His Ways and not to hurt your soul in eternal damnation in the name of objections to the Word of God.

Lord, overrule all my objections to Your Word, Amen

Memory verse:   Romans 3: 3
"For what if some did not believe?, shall their unbelief make the Faith of God without effect?"
