The gospel is presented as the answer to many needs, and even desires. But what does the gospel itself tell us about our greatest problem? What is our greatest need? The wrath of God is essential to his righteous nature. God’s wrath is his righteous response to unrighteousness, and those who sin against him are under his wrath. We need a Savior who will deliver us from the wrath of God. Romans includes a lengthy section on the reality of God’s wrath that is designed to lead us to faith in Christ, to worship God, and to live the new life of the Spirit.
