Do you believe God?

 

 

21 But now, apart from the law, the righteousness of God has been revealed, attested by the Law and the Prophets

Romans 3:10 –

There is no one righteous, not even one.

 

 

 

22 The righteousness of God is through faith in Jesus Christ[q] to all who believe, since there is no distinction.

 

 

 

23 For all have sinned and fall short of the[r] glory of God. 

 

 

 

24 They are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus

 

 

25 God presented him as an atoning sacrifice[s] in his blood, received through faith, to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his restraint God passed over the sins previously committed. 26 God presented him to demonstrate his righteousness at the present time, so that he would be righteous and declare righteous[t] the one who has faith in Jesus.

 

 

24 They are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.

 

 

 

27 Where, then, is boasting? It is excluded. By what kind of law?[u] By one of works? No, on the contrary, by a law[v] of faith. 

I was not saved because I am good….the Excutionar was turned back because Jesus is Holy and I claim His righteousness..he has set me right…and all who confess in obedience follow Jesus as Lord.

 

 

29 Or is God the God of Jews only? Is he not the God of Gentiles too? Yes, of Gentiles too, 30 since there is one God who will justify the circumcised by faith and the uncircumcised through faith. 

 

31 Do we then nullify the law through faith? Absolutely not! On the contrary, we uphold the law.

 

What then will we say that Abraham, our forefather according to the flesh, has found?[a] If Abraham was justified[b] by works, he has something to boast about—but not before God. For what does the Scripture say? Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him for righteousness.
