Romans 2:15

Posted by Anthony Crumley

They show that the work of the law is written on their hearts, while their conscience also bears witness, and their conflicting thoughts accuse or even excuse them

As mentioned in the previous verse, the law was given to the Jewish people.  They received the ten commandments written by God’s own hand as well as the books of the old testament.  Other peoples did not have this revelation of God’s law written on stone and paper.

Nonetheless, all people have the law of God “written on their hearts.”  Our conscience was given to us by God and is a direct revelation of His law to each and every person.  Whenever our conscience accuses us of violating God’s law or excuses us when we follow it, we show the effect of His law written in our heart.  As a result, we will all be without excuse when we stand before God, the righteous judge.
