Grace to You

It was a few years ago, maybe three years ago that it was brought to my attention that it had been quite a number of years since we had looked at the heart of the book of Romans, chapters 3, 4 and 5. And it was suggested to me at that time that going back to that text might be a wonderful blessing and benediction to the folks in our church who have not done that. We have so many new people and this is such the heart of the gospel that certainly that was a very important suggestion. Given all the other things that we were involved in, took a few years to get around to it, but we arrive there tonight, and gratefully so.

So open your Bible, if you will, to Romans chapter 3. And I want to begin reading at verse 9 and basically read down to verse 20...Romans chapter 3 verses 9 through verse 20.

"What then? Are we better than they? Not at all, for we have already charged that both Jews and Greeks are all under sin. As it is written, 'There is none righteous, no, not even one. There is none who understands. There is none who seeks for God; all have turned aside, together they have become useless; there is none who does good, there is not even one. Their throat is an open grave. With their tongues they keep deceiving, the poison of asps is under their lips; whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness; their feet are swift to shed blood, destruction and misery are in their paths, and the path of peace they have not known. There is no fear of God before their eyes. Now we know that whatever the Law says, it speaks to those who are under the Law so that every mouth may be closed and all the world may become accountable to God because by the works of the Law no flesh will be justified in His sight, for in the Law comes the knowledge of sin.'"...
