The Good News of the Gospel: Justification by Faith

Romans 3:21-31            February 15, 2015        Link for audio/video/manuscript

The bad news of the gospel is that sin a universal problem. The good news of the gospel is that God judges sin – and that we are justified by faith in Jesus Christ through whom we receive the righteousness of God through faith - which is a gift given to us all by the grace of God. None of us is worthy of God’s righteous but the “gospel” which is “the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes” because our worth comes from God who showed us love for us through Jesus Christ, who died for our sin so we might be forgiven and redeemed and restored back to God. That’s good news!
