Justified by Faith

27Then what becomes of boasting? It is excluded. By what law? By that of works? No, but by the law of faith. 28For we hold that a person is justified by faith apart from works prescribed by the law. 29Or is God the God of Jews only? Is he not the God of Gentiles also? Yes, of Gentiles also,30since God is one; and he will justify the circumcised on the ground of faith and the uncircumcised through that same faith. 31Do we then overthrow the law by this faith? By no means! On the contrary, we uphold the law. (Romans 3:27-31, NRSV)

We can’t boast about our place in the kingdom because we did nothing to earn it.

We are all made right by God and it is nothing we ourselves have done.

And we don’t get to do whatever we want, now that we know that God has freed us from our past life, we must live the life he has called us to.

So how do we live to show His love to the world?
