The Righteousness from God & the Righteousness of God

  1. The Righteousness from God Given – imputed (Reckoned) to the Believer

(3:21-24)

  1. Apart from the law
  2. Testified to by the Law and the Prophets
  3. Through Faith in Christ to all

who Believe

  1. Without distinction – for all have sinned

and are falling short of the Glory of God

  1. The way we are made Righteous, is by

the grace of God, through the

redemption that Jesus accomplished.

 

  1. The Righteousness of God Displayed

– His Just Character (3:25-26)

  1. In Christ’s sacrifice – for those in the

past who trusted in the promises of God.

  1. In Christ’s sacrifice – for those in the

present (that God might show his justice

while justifying those who have faith in

Christ)
