ROMANS 3:28 JUSTIFIED BY FAITH
« on: October 17, 2019, 03:31:07 pm »
Romans 3:28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.

 The law can save no one. We are justified by faith in Christ Jesus, by believing the gospel of Grace.

 3:29 Is he the God of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also:

 3:30 Seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith.

 Jew and Gentile are justified by faith. Without the law. Without the covenants of Israel. Without good works. Without water baptism. Without walking down an aisle. Without confessing. We are justified by faith alone. It has always been by grace, by faith, that one can be justified. It has always been by the justification found in Christ that God could be just in forgiving sin; this was only made known by the revelations given to Paul.

 3:31 Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.

 The law is not made void by faith. The law is not made void because Gentiles, not given the law, are saved by faith.

Romans 4:1 What shall we say then that Abraham our father, as pertaining to the flesh, hath found?

 4:2 For if Abraham were justified by works, he hath whereof to glory; but not before God.

 4:3 For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness.

 Abraham was justified unto eternal life by believing God. Abraham was justified by works when he obeyed God and was willing to offer up Isaac.

 There is more than one meaning to justification; look at Psalm 51:4 where God is declared to be righteous in his judgment. There is justification unto eternal life as when Abraham by faith, believed God (Genesis 15:6). There is justification in being righteous as when Abraham was justified by works (Genesis 22:2 James 2:21).

 It should be noted that Abraham was justified by faith in Genesis 15:6, but after Genesis 15:6 covenant was made with Abraham. Covenant was made in Genesis 15:18 wherein God promised the land to his seed. God made covenant in Genesis 17:2 in which God promised to multiply Abraham exceedingly. God made covenant in Genesis 17:4 in which God promised to make Abraham father of many nations. God made in Genesis 17:10 the covenant of circumcision.

 In Genesis 17:1 God told Abraham to be perfect (whole, without blemish) before him. In Genesis 17:2 God said he would make the promised covenant if Abraham was perfect before him. Abraham had to keep the covenant (Genesis 17:9). The book of James says faith was made perfect by works (James 2:22), so it can be seen that Abraham was justified by works under the covenants made by God and his faith made perfect.

 4:4 Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt.

 If we could produce good works God would be obligated by debt to repay us; this would not be grace. Grace is given not out of debt, but love.

 4:5 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.

 God justifies the ungodly. We do not have to be righteous to be saved. We do not have to turn from sin and clean up to be saved. We have to believe on Jesus Christ who paid the penalty for our sin and justifies us freely by faith in his blood (Romans 3:24-25). Out of love and thankfulness we can, and should live in newness of life unto him (Romans 6:4
