Romans 3:19-28

We all know that what the law says speaks to people under law.

There’s no arguing against that. All must make account to God. 

But there’s nothing in the law that makes us righteous in God’s sight

——

Righteousness with God, attested through the prophets and the law

Is disclosed through faith in Jesus to believers one and all.

We’ve all sinned; we all fall short, but all are justified by grace.

——

This great gift of our redemption takes effect when we have faith.

What’s the use of boasting? Nothing! Christ it was who took our place. 

But the law remains to help us live in thankfulness each day.
