One Way to Be Made Right
There is only one God, and He makes people right with Himself only by faith, whether they are Jews or Gentiles.
Righteous means right with God.
- Righteousness is the state of moral perfection required by God to enter heaven.
We need the law, but not for salvation or righteousness, for sanctification.
- The law points us to our problem; our problem points to our Solution; which is salvation through Jesus, and sanctification through obedience to the Word.
- However, sanctification doesn’t make us righteous, only faith in Jesus makes us righteousness.
God’s righteousness is not offered to us as something to take up the slack between our ability to keep the law and God’s perfect standard. It is not given to supplement our own righteousness; it is given completely apart from our own attempted righteousness. – David Guzik
Romans 4:20 -Abraham’s faith didn’t waver.
This puzzles me. Abraham caved to Sarah’s plan to father a child with Hagar. Did he think God was fulfilling His plan through a child with Hagar?
Something to Do
Praise Jesus… only Jesus.
