Justification by Faith: Work-less Salvation

Romans 4:1-12          February 22, 2015           Link for audio/video/manuscript

We do not need to nor can we in any way earn the love and favor and forgiveness of God. We need not and we must not get our sense of worth from things or people or from ourselves. We were created in God’s image, but sin has wreaked havoc on what God originally intended. But God promised He would send someone to rescue, redeem, repair and restore us back to God. That someone is Jesus. His life and death and resurrection is the fulfilled hope of that promise. In Jesus we are justified by faith alone. In Jesus we are righteous before God by faith alone. In Jesus we need not nor can we do anything that will save us. Jesus has done it all!
