“We ourselves are Jews by birth and not Gentile sinners; yet we know that a person is not justifiedby works of the law but through faith in Jesus Christ, so we also have believed in Christ Jesus, in order to be justified by faith in Christ and not by works of the law, because by works of the law no one will be justified.”
- God’s Law was given to us to expose our sin! No one, except for Jesus, has ever kept the law and not sinned! Jesus is the only way for our sins to be paid for, and the best person on earth is condemned to hell without Him! None of us will ever be justified in God’s eyes by our works, however, all who believe and call on Jesus will be justified, sanctified, glorified, and saved! If we were able to be good enough to be justified by our works, there would not have been a need for Christ to come, but we are not able, and Christ did come! Praise God from whom all blessings flow!
Romans 8:1-4 “Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death. For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.”
