Faith Alone: Romans 3v27-4v8
Speaker Jonny Grant, on May 28, 2017
Part of the Glorious Salvation series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Faith Alone: Romans 3v27-4v8
Saved by Faith
‘I hated that word ‘justice of God’ that justice by which God is just and by which he punishes sinners and the unjust...I did not love, no, rather I hated the just God who punishes sinners. In silence, if I did not blaspheme, then certainly I grumbled vehemently and got angry at God.’ Martin Luther
‘Christ is full of grace, life, and salvation. The soul is full of sins, death and damnation. Now let faith come between them and sins, death and damnation will be Christ’s, while grace, life and salvation will be the souls’ Martin Luther
Justified by Faith
- Declared Righteous
‘It’s the exact opposite of condemnation. To condemn is to declare someone guilty, to justify is to declare them righteous. In the bible it refers to God’s act of unmerited favour by which God puts a sinner right with himself, not only acquitting him, but accepting and treating him as righteous.’ John Stott
‘There is a righteousness God imputes to us apart from works – in other words it is
passive righteousness. So then, have we nothing to do to obtain this righteousness? No, nothing at all! For this righteousness comes by doing nothing, hearing nothing, knowing nothing, but rather in knowing and believing this only – that Christ has gone to the right hand of the Father, not to become our judge, but to become for us our righteousness, our salvation!’ Martin Luther
- Faith in Jesus
‘Although I still sin, I don’t despair, because Christ lives, who is both my righteousness and my eternal life. In that righteousness I have no sin, no fear, no guilty conscience, no fear of death. I am indeed a sinner in this life of mine and in my own righteousness, but I have another life, another righteousness above this life, which is Christ, the Son of God.’
- Gift of God

27Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith. 28Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law. 29Is he the God of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also: 30Seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith. 31Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law. 4:1 What shall we say then that Abraham our father, as pertaining to the flesh, hath found? 2For if Abraham were justified by works, he hath whereof to glory; but not before God. 3For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness. 4Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. 5But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. 6Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works, 7Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered. 8Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin. (KJV)
