Romans 3.21-31  •  1/19/16

        Paul is arguing that the righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, brings justification… or as Paul writes in Ephesians “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.”

        Paul’s arguments are neccessary since many people back then thought they were ‘entitled’ because they really were good people, because of who they were, or what they had done, since they went to the ‘righ’ church, etc. Actually... just the way you and I usually think!

       Next week we will continue with Romans chapter 4.
