By Faith We Are Justified—Romans 3:22-24

By Faith We Are Justified—Romans 3:22-24

"This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus" (Romans 3:22-24)

We memorized hundreds of verses as kids. Even today, I baffle people with how quickly I recall passages of scripture—quite a party trick!

They always come out in King Jimmy Jive, too, because that is how we memorized them.

Today, I am grateful for the scriptures tucked away in my memory.


Since the Law was set up to condemn us, which it did perfectly, God’s solution was to justify us, taking away the charge of the Law
 

One of the first verses I memorized was Romans 3:23, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.”

It’s true: we’ve all sinned. We’ve all fallen short in many ways, and this is important to recognize, but this is only the partial truth. The main emphasis of this thought bookends this verse.

Righteousness Apart From the Law—Romans 3:21

Righteousness Apart From the Law—Romans 3:21

"But now a righteousness from God, apart from law, has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify" (Romans 3:21)

I remember a lunch with a young friend who believed in Jesus. She had grown up in the church her entire life and had recently graduated from a Christian college. Through our discussion, she made it clear that she was trying really hard to be a “good” Christian.

When I probed her about her efforts, she became a little defensive, and I left feeling sorry for her because she was missing the whole point of Jesus. In the end, it was evident that she was trusting in her own efforts to be right with God.


At this point in Romans, there is a paradigm shift in thinking that must occur to understand the rest of the letter. In total, this is it: The righteousness we need cannot be obtained by our efforts.

The good news is that in our lacking is where we discover God’s provision. The righteousness we need comes from Him independently and apart from the Law.
