The Book of Romans Pt. 3
To justify is to declare righteous as a judicial act. God does more than this for the Believer. He declares them righteous and reconciles them to Him. By accepting Jesus, Christians awaken a sense of confidence. Thus there is peace where fear one ruled, hope even in difficult circumstances, and a growing awareness of God’s love. In Part 3 of this eight-part series, Dr. Price shares the benefits of Christ’s redemptive work.
- Mankind has been affected by Adam’s act of sin, which brought spiritual death to all. However, Jesus’ act of obedience made it possible for God to justify sinful man.
- Experience brings Believers to the things they desire, hope sets the goal, and faith produces the results in their lives.
- Can water baptism save man? Certainly not! Believers must understand that water baptism identifies them with Christ in His death, burial and resurrection.
- Spiritual death, which once held the Believer in an unbreakable grip, is no longer master!
