Without allowing for the historical context given to us in Acts and Galatians, which clearly shows us the theological problems that were happening in Jerusalem and what was being taught there erroneously, and treating James’ letter as an apostolic document (he was not an apostle!) rather than a historical/wisdom document that should be included in […]

What does it mean that the righteousness of God is manifested apart from the law?

Discover the gift of righteousness through faith in Christ. According to Romans 1:16-17, the Gospel is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, for in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith. Romans 3:21-24 tells us that the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law and is received through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. We are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus. As Philippians 3:9 tells us, we are not to have a righteousness of our own that comes from the law, but rather the righteousness that comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith.

What does Paul mean when he talks about the “blessedness” of a person in Romans 4:6-8?

Learn about the blessedness of salvation, which refers to the state of being forgiven and having righteousness imputed to a person without works. This means that believers can rest assured in the forgiveness and inheritance that comes from believing in Jesus. Forgiveness not only grants access to eternal life, but it also qualifies believers to become heirs of God. Sin cannot keep a justified person from the blessings of God. According to Romans 3:26, the blessing of forgiveness also qualifies God to make believers heirs, so that He may be “just and the justifier of Him who believes in Jesus.” If you are seeking assurance of salvation, look no further than the grace of God, who justifies and forgives those who believe in Jesus.
