Chapter 3 - Part
Romans 3 (NKJV)
19 Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who
are under the law, that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may
become guilty before God.
20 Therefore by the deeds of the law no flesh will be justified
in His sight, for by the law is the knowledge of sin.
21 But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed,
being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets,
22 even the righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ,
to all and on all who believe. For there is no difference;
23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
24 being justified freely by His grace through the redemption
that is in Christ Jesus,
25 whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through
faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God
had passed over the sins that were previously committed,
26 to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that
might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.
27 Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? Of works?
No, but by the law of faith.
28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith apart
from the deeds of the law.
29 Or is He the God of the Jews only? Is He not also the God
of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also,
30 since there is one God who will justify the circumcised by
faith and the uncircumcised through faith.
31 Do we then make void the law through faith? Certainly not!
On the contrary, we establish the law.
8.3:22 NU-Text omits and on all.
It's a privilege, as God's chosen people,
to be chosen again
through Jesus Christ. However, unrighteousness
does nothing for us

Romans Study: Questions, Commentary, and more:
Summary of Today's Study:
Romans is a primer on
the relationship of the Believer to The Lord Jesus Christ.
Today we are continuing with our study
on Chapter 3 of Romans.
Keep in mind, as we study,
that we want to address:
1. How am I saved?
2. Can I lose my salvation (that
is, if I commit a sin, will I find I am no longer saved)?
3. If I keep on sinning, will
I be saved?
4. Is there victory over sin?
5. If I neglect my relationship
with the Lord Jesus, what happens to my salvation?
6. Once I am saved, do I have
license to keep on sinning?
The further issues are:
7. Once I am saved, how do I
keep from sinning?
8. Is it something I do, and
thus it becomes an issue of pride? Or is it a work that God does in our
9. Can we ever expect to overcome
sin? If we do, how does it happen? How are we set free?
10. If a person backslides in
his faith, and doesn't come back to vibrant Christian faith, is he saved
if he is in that condition when he dies?
|Scripture is quoted
today from the New American Standard Bible. We work with various
versions, because we believe that being well studied in the scripture will
enable us to rightly divide the word of truth. We encourage you to do likewise,
because of the insights we have gotten. Familiarize yourself with one,
and then go on to use others.
