The Meaning of Justification

Morning Service
Jan 29, 2023

How can unrighteous people be made right before a righteous God? In Romans 3, the apostle Paul pronounces a bleak indictment over all humanity: that we are all sinful. What’s more, we are hopeless to save ourselves, as our condition cannot be solved by our own efforts. Instead, we need a Savior. Jesus Christ, who perfectly obeyed God’s law on our behalf, has paid our debt in full. It’s a gift he gives freely to all who trust in him. Once we believe, we can stand before the Father with confidence, robed in the perfect righteousness of Christ, saying, “Jesus gave this to me, and I belong to him.”

Romans 3:21-22
