Romans 3

What advantage then hath the Jew? or what profit is there of circumcision?

Much every way: chiefly, because that unto them were committed the oracles of God.

For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect?

God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.

But if our unrighteousness commend the righteousness of God, what shall we say? Is God unrighteous who taketh vengeance? (I speak as a man)

God forbid: for then how shall God judge the world?

For if the truth of God hath more abounded through my lie unto his glory; why yet am I also judged as a sinner?

And not rather, (as we be slanderously reported, and as some affirm that we say,) Let us do evil, that good may come? whose damnation is just.

What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin;

10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:

11 There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.

12 They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

13 Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips:

14 Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness:

15 Their feet are swift to shed blood:

16 Destruction and misery are in their ways:

17 And the way of peace have they not known:

18 There is no fear of God before their eyes.

19 Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.

20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.

21 But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;

22 Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:

23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;

26 To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.

27 Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.

28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.

29 Is he the God of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also:

30 Seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith.

31 Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.

  1. For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being JUSTIFIED freely by his grace through the REDEMPTION that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth to be a PROPITIATION through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.
    Seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith. [That one God is Jesus, the justifier.]
    Romans 3:23‭-‬26,30 KJV

    The law, whether written on tables of stone or on the fleshly tables of our hearts, proves one thing: We are all sinners; there is none so righteous that he can live up to God’s standard of holiness. We are all guilty and waiting to be convicted and condemned before the judgment seat of Christ. However, through application of the PROPITIATION (the shed blood of Jesus Christ), we can be JUSTIFIED and REDEEMED before that great judgment day arrives.

    PROPITIATION: a word borrowed from the sacrificial system of the Temple. It literally means “a mercy seat” or “a place of mercy” made possible by a propitiatory sacrifice or an offering of atonement. Paul is saying that Jesus is the true mercy seat. He is not only the place where sinners can deposit their sins and find mercy, but He is also the sacrifice through which that mercy is obtained.

    JUSTIFICATION: a legal term borrowed from the court system. It means that one is made just (though he be guilty) by declaration. He is judicially declared as righteous and the guilt, or liability to punishment, is removed because the demands of justice have been satisfied. We are declared righteous by our justifier, Jesus Christ. There is therefore now no condemnation (no sentence waiting to be served, no penalty of sin due) to those who are in Christ Jesus.

    REDEMPTION: a commercial term borrowed from the slave markets. To redeem means to release on payment of ransom, or to purchase freedom. It is the recalling of captives from captivity through the payment of a ransom.

    The ransom for sin was innocent blood, and Jesus, being our Kinsman Redeemer and the only Just One, purchased our redemption. He satisfied justice on our behalf, and He obtained mercy for us through His atoning sacrifice. No matter how you look at it, Paul says, we are made innocent, righteous, and free from sin’s grip and penalty (through faith) by the application of the shed blood of Jesus Christ. Paul later explains that we apply Christ’s death to our lives through baptism in Jesus name.

    “For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.”
    Galatians 3:27 KJV

    “Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?”
    Romans 6:3 KJV

    One final thought: All of the above deal with the outward penalty of sin. Redemption, propitiation, and justification do not make a person inwardly holy. For this, we need the sanctifying work of the Holy Ghost present and active in our lives. Accordingly, the work of salvation was not complete when Jesus died; He had to rise again to give us a new life in the Spirit. Moreover, salvation on our part is not complete at belief, confession, repentance, or baptism; we must be made new creatures in Christ by being born again of His Holy Spirit.

  2. Verses 23-26 NLT “For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Yet God, in his grace, freely makes us right in his sight. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins. For God presented Jesus as the sacrifice for sin. People are made right with God when they believe that Jesus sacrificed his life, shedding his blood. This sacrifice shows that God was being fair when he held back and did not punish those who sinned in times past, for he was looking ahead and including them in what he would do in this present time. God did this to demonstrate his righteousness, for he himself is fair and just, and he makes sinners right in his sight when they believe in Jesus.” This section of scripture is captioned “Christ Took Our Punishment”. Jesus thought you were worth dying for as John 3:16 KJV says “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” As the song “Worth” says:

    You thought I was worth saving
    So, You came and changed my life
    You thought I was worth keeping
    So, You cleaned me up inside
    You thought I was to die for
    So, You sacrificed your life

  3. 21 But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed, being witnessed by the law and the prophets, even the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all who believe, for there is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.

  4. 20.
    No one can be justified by keeping the law. The law was not given to justify people but to produce the knowledge of sin — not the knowledge of salvation,but the knowledge of sin.
    We could never know what a crooked line is unless we also knew a straight line . The law is like a straight .when men test themselves by it, they see how crooked they are.
    We can use a mirror to see that our face is dirty , but the mirror is a thermometer will it a person has a fever , but swallowing the thermometer will not cure the fever. The law is good when it is used to produce conviction of sin , but it is worthless as a savior from sin.

    A.L.M.A.S.

  5. They don’t even fear God.”
    Romans 3:18 CEV
    This was me. Thought that i knew life at a young age. I was foolish and deceiving myself living a life of sin and daily rejecting the Lord. It is my responsibility to pray for the lost daily. God has always shown himself faithful to His word, as His Spirit draws us closer.
    God forgive us of our sins, open our eyes and hearts to your grace…’ your grace is sufficient for me.’❤

  6. 22 Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:

    23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

    The conditions of one’s heart before coming to God and having followed the plan of salvation, is without a doubt no worse than the conditions of sin consumed with greed, self fulfillment, and every other sinful nature known to man. Because of the first man Adam, we were cursed by the nature of being born through sin. We were born in sin and shapened in iniquity. So when Paul wa stating that we all have sinned and fell short of the glory of God.

    Through the sacrificial lamb of God, Jesus ( God manifested in the flesh) came to this earth that he created and offered more than a sacrifice. He offered a ransom that in no means we are able to pay with out the shedding of precious Holy blood.

    I’m so thankful that Jesus thought of me when going to the cross to allow me to have an avenue through the high priest to remit my sins. Giving me a way to save my soul from a condemnation of Hell fire and eternal damnation.

    We have to tell the world about this Jesus that we love so much!

    I love the Kingdom!

  7. Romans 3:19 [Amp] Now we know that whatever the Law says, or speaks to those who are under the Law, so that [ the murmurs and excuses of] every mouth may be hushed and all the world may be held accountable to God. Lord guard our mouths and hearts . Help us all be obeintent and submissive to your will. To stop murmuring and complaining and we being thankful for what you have done for us . And Give you all the glory and honer.

  8. 22 Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:
    23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
    24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

  9. Romans 3:23-24

    23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

    24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

    Take a look at how this verses os placed . 23 says all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. There is no period there Verse 24 completes what Paul actually was wanting to state yes all have sinned but the focus is that through Jesus Christ we can have freedom from sin and through His blood redemption. Sin is a choice one makes . Bring born in sin was not what God intended but because of one mans choice sin entered the world. But because if Hedus Christ we can be cleansed and choose to live a life from sin . Once again through Jesus Christ we are set free.

  10. It seems to me Paul is focusing his message on the Jewish self-righteous viewpoint. This message benefits the newly converted gentiles, which establishes their righteousness through their faith in Jesus Christ, it and invalidate the Jewish perception of fulfilling the laws.

  11. 3 For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect?
    4 God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.

    Every man a liar. We cannot ever take the word of man over the word of God. Man had to many flaws and has the capability to decieve, and with that capability, we can only truly have full trust in Christ for every word that proceeds from his word. His word is infallible and can not be contradicted. It is the source of truth

  12. iLove the Kingdom
    10As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
    11There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.
    12They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

    These scriptures describe each and everyone of us without the Holy Ghost. Without Jesus leading and guiding us, we would all be hopeless and headed into sin and deceit. Any good thing within us comes from the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Thank You Jesus for saving us and delivering us 🙂

  13. 31 Well then, if we emphasize faith, does this mean that we can forget about the law? Of course not! In fact, only when we have faith do we truly fulfill the law. (NLT)

    Without faith it is impossible to please God!! We are saved by grace, through faith and are commanded to live according to His Word – we gotta line up with the plumb line!

  14. 29 Is he the God of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also:

    HALELUJAH!!! Thank you JESUS!!! What if there was no salvation for the Gentiles??? What then??? Thank you JESUS!!! HALELUJAH!!! I LOVE YOU DADDY!!!

  15. 23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

    24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

    25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;

    26 To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.

    27 Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.

    28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.

    29 Is he the God of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also:

    30 Seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith.

    31 Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.

    Im learning that I am a sinner and I fall shoort every day, all day, But I am redeemed and because of Jesus I /you have mercy and grace every day! Boaz was Ruths Kinsman redeemer, Jesus is ours ( i read that on Bro Grahms comment) Jesus is the reason that as a gentile I can have hope, Thank you Lord! I love you Jesus

  16. 22 Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:

    23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

    24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

    There is no difference in people, all have sinned and have come short of the glory of God. We are given the chance or repentance and redemption. Thank you Jesus for redemption!

  17. We truly recognize that because all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God, that something has to address the sin in our lives before we can freely enter into his presence. Everyone, even many in the world enjoy to quote that we are ‘justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus’. That phrase however, like any other phrase or passage in the Bible is given in a particular context. After all, the Bible also declares to eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we die… but we may not want to partake of the death that is reserved for those who choose to take that particular path for their lives.

    We live in the dispensation of Grace, but that dispensation is a gradual building upon the former revelation of previous dispensations that brings us closer to God’s perfect will for our lives before him. We cannot be saved by the law, for ‘by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin’. The law provided an understanding of the sin that separates us from God, while Grace provides a means to address that sin and restore us into his presence. ‘Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.’

    Jesus himself satisfied every jot and tittle of the law when he died upon the cross… but the law did not require him to do so. He did so for the joy that was set before him! It was his grace that provided us with a sacrifice for the sin that the law condemns within us. That’s why our faith in his grace establishes the law… it satisfies all the requirements of the law. Just like the palmist declared: ‘Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.’ That 85th psalm is a wonderful description of salvation… crying for his mercy and peace while decrying any return to our former ways. Our thankfulness for his grace is always seen in our willingness to live within the safety of the bounds of his law for our lives! That is how his light shines pure and bright into the darkness of the world around us!

  18. For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;
    Romans 3:23‭-‬25 KJV
    https://bible.com/bible/1/rom.3.23-25.KJV

    I know that I fall fall short of the glory of God. I thank Him every day for a fresh start. I know that it’s through God’s grace that my heart is filled with the conviction of my sins; which I do sin daily, but sometimes don’t even know it. I know that when judgement comes: I want to hear well done. I know that I have a lot of work and little time to do it. I thank you Jesus for filling my heart and giving me a mind to be stayed on you Lord.

  19. 3-4 “For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect? God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.”

    I was reminded of the time Peter denied knowing Jesus three times. Did his unfaithfulness hinder The Lords Will from taking place? No. Jesus was still crucified and rose on the third day.

    When we build our faith foundation on people rather than the word of God, we are on unstable ground. For when they are weak, its an earthquake to our foundation. We allow their actions and choices to cause us to question the faithfulness of Jesus.

    We must build our foundation on the Word of God!

  20. Romans 3:25, “Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;”

    1 John 2:2, “And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for our’s only, but also for the sins of the whole world.”

  21. MSG – 9-20 So where does that put us? Do we Jews get a better break than the others? Not really. Basically, all of us, whether insiders or outsiders, start out in identical conditions, which is to say that we all start out as sinners. Scripture leaves no doubt about it:

    There’s nobody living right, not even one,
    nobody who knows the score, nobody alert for God.
    They’ve all taken the wrong turn;
    they’ve all wandered down blind alleys.
    No one’s living right;
    I can’t find a single one.
    Their throats are gaping graves,
    their tongues slick as mudslides.
    Every word they speak is tinged with poison.
    They open their mouths and pollute the air.
    They race for the honor of sinner-of-the-year,
    litter the land with heartbreak and ruin,
    Don’t know the first thing about living with others.
    They never give God the time of day.

    This makes it clear, doesn’t it, that whatever is written in these Scriptures is not what God says about others but to us to whom these Scriptures were addressed in the first place! And it’s clear enough, isn’t it, that we’re sinners, every one of us, in the same sinking boat with everybody else? Our involvement with God’s revelation doesn’t put us right with God. What it does is force us to face our complicity in everyone else’s sin.

    We are all sinners saved by grace. When we get proud and haughty in spirit, we need to remember where God brought us from. All men were created equal and started on the same field – as a sinner. We should be eternally grateful that the sacrifice on Calvary brought us eternal salvation. It’s up to us to receive that gift , and to live the way the Word commands us to live, all the while being humbled that we were chosen to receive the gift of eternal life.

    None of us are worthy, no not one. Our righteousness is as filthy rags, that is why we must die daily to our flesh, and put on HIS righteousness (becoming holy as He is holy).

    Our perfection comes when we cross that wide gulf into the heavenlies. Until then we still must fight on our knees to become more like Jesus everyday.

  22. THY KINGDOM COME
    HOPE FOR THE HOPELESS

    23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
    24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

    Being born in the bloodline of sinful Adam places each of us in grip of sin when we are born. Seeing that everyone born in sin needs a savior and incase you are wondering if that is you. If your name is not JESUS and you are not GOD manifest in flesh that will include you.

    ALL have sinned, because we were born in sin or under the sinful influence of Adam. This fact reveals the reason and purpose for the New Birth or Born Again experience JESUS commanded in John 3:5.

    The word redemption is very important to us. It does not give us a license or permission to sin in the future, but it does give us an opportunity to be washed and cleansed by and through JESUS.

    Redemption – 629. apolytroœsis; from a compound of 575 and 3083; (the act) ransom in full, i.e. (figuratively) riddance, or (specially) Christian salvation: — deliverance, redemption.

    We should receive this gracious gift and live out our lives free from sin and abstaining from evil. Always giving thanks and praise to JESUS for this precious gift.

  23. “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed, to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.”
    ‭‭Romans‬ ‭3:23-26‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

    A pure gift.
    We did nothing to deserve His mercy, we did nothing to earn it, yet He so freely gave it.
    We fall short of His glory in countless ways and our freedom could have only been purchased by One who had never fell short. So the only One undeserving of any punishment made the ultimate sacrifice. We can’t purchase it with our good works, and we cannot bring redemption upon ourselves. If it wasn’t made free to us, we couldn’t have had it all. So we are justified freely by His grace. His unmerited favor, given to us without regard to what we deserve. It is a giving motivated purely by the giver, and motivated by nothing in the one who receives.

    Everyone falls short but everyone can be redeemed by His grace!

  24. “For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Yet God, in his grace, freely makes us right in his sight. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins. For God presented Jesus as the sacrifice for sin. People are made right with God when they believe that Jesus sacrificed his life, shedding his blood. This sacrifice shows that God was being fair when he held back and did not punish those who sinned in times past, for he was looking ahead and including them in what he would do in this present time. God did this to demonstrate his righteousness, for he himself is fair and just, and he makes sinners right in his sight when they believe in Jesus.”
    ‭‭Romans‬ ‭3:23-26‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    How Great is our God. He didn’t had to pay for our sins but He did so we can have everlasting life.
    Thank You Jesus for your love and mercy!

  25. 31 Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.

    Faith alone isn’t going to save us. Faith and obedience will. It’s God’s law that helps us see what offends Him and what is sin. How can someone in the faith say they’re saved and still willingly sin before God? Does God like dwelling among disobedient children? No, He doesn’t, just like parents don’t like it when their children disobey them. If we love Jesus, we will obey His commandments. So let’s place the word of God in our hearts and live to please Him.

  26. What advantage then hath the Jew? or what profit is there of circumcision?

    2 Much every way: chiefly, because that unto them were committed the oracles of God.

    3 For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect?

    4 God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.

    5 But if our unrighteousness commend the righteousness of God, what shall we say? Is God unrighteous who taketh vengeance? (I speak as a man)

    6 God forbid: for then how shall God judge the world?

    7 For if the truth of God hath more abounded through my lie unto his glory; why yet am I also judged as a sinner?

    The law could not save in or from sins, yet it gave the Jews advantages for obtaining salvation. Their stated ordinances, education in the knowledge of the true God and his service, and many favours shown to the children of Abraham, all were means of grace, and doubtless were made useful to the conversion of many. But especially the Scriptures were committed to them. Enjoyment of God’s word and ordinances, is the chief happiness of a people. But God’s promises are made only to believers; therefore the unbelief of some, or of many professors, cannot make this faithfulness of no effect. He will fulfil his promises to his people, and bring his threatened vengeance upon unbelievers. God’s judging the world, should for ever silence all doubtings and reflections upon his justice. The wickedness and obstinate unbelief of the Jews, proved man’s need of the righteousness of God by faith, and also his justice in punishing for sin. Let us do evil, that good may come, is oftener in the heart than in the mouth of sinners; for few thus justify themselves in their wicked ways. The believer knows that duty belongs to him, and events to God; and that he must not commit any sin, or speak one falsehood, upon the hope, or even assurance, that God may thereby glorify himself. If any speak and act thus, their condemnation is just.

  27. Established by the Law

    26 To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.
    27 Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.
    28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.
    29 Is he the God of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also:
    30 Seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith.
    31 Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.

    How are we saved? Yes, we are saved by repentance, being baptized in Jesus Name, and receiving the Holy Ghost. But there is one element that is quickly overlooked by many that is apart of all those things. Faith. Faith is- complete trust or confidence in someone or something. So did you have faith when you asked God to forgive you in repentance? Did you have faith that God would Wash away your sins when you got baptized? Did you have faith in God when you Received His Holy Spirit? Let me answer that YES, you did!!! But after the fact of those things, do you still believe? Have you kept the faith? Thankfully it’s not just by faith that we are saved, but Faith did establish the Law, the Law of Faith in vs 27. His Kingdom is established by the faith of the saints of the body of Christ. Wow! The kingdom of God is Established by the Law of Faith.

  28. 29 Is he the God of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also:

    30 Seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith.

  29. Josiah: 20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.
    Knowing, understanding, and studying the Word of God is essential to living a Christian life. The Bible does not just show us what is right. The Bible also teaches and shows us things that we should not do. Peoples mistakes in the Bible should teach us so that we do not do those mistakes. So, let us GO STUDY THE WORD OF GOD so that we may become better Christians!

  30. [Rom 3:28-30 NLT] 28 So we are made right with God through faith and not by obeying the law. 29 After all, is God the God of the Jews only? Isn’t he also the God of the Gentiles? Of course he is. 30 There is only one God, and he makes people right with himself only by faith, whether they are Jews or Gentiles.

    Earlier in the chapter Paul established that none were righteous and that all had sinned. Then he plainly states, [Rom 3:22 NLT] 22 We are made right with God by placing our faith in Jesus Christ. And this is true for everyone who believes, no matter who we are.
    This is a very well presented argument to show Jesus’ death was for all people, sinners, to include Gentiles, who are made right with God through faith in Jesus Christ. If He died for all, then all could be made righteous in Him!

  31. 30 Seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith.
    31 Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.

    Through faith – vs – by faith
    Is it that, by faith we circumcise our fleshly nature, and therefore we exercise our faith by not merely being “good Christians”, but we become examples of Jesus.

  32. Romans 3:9-11.
    No One Is Righteous

    What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin ; As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.

    Ecclesiastes 7:20 For there is not a just man upon the earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.

    Psalm 14:1-3The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt,they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God.

  33. 23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

    So then, we all need the forgiveness that is in baptism. We all need to be saved from the power of sin. None is exempt from this.

    The thing people don’t realize is that they think God is only good for when you are in need, not knowing that you are in need dying in your sins and need His saving blood.

  34. for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood—to be received by faith. He did this to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished—
    Romans 3:23‭-‬25

    There must always be a sacrifice that serves as an atonement. His blood did this for me. He took my place and died for my sins and I am very thankful.

  35. 25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;

    Thank you Jesus for the blood! Jesus could’ve not shed His blood if he didn’t love us. Despite all the pain that He went through He was determined and knew that He had to do what He had to do. Made me think that as Christians “Followers of Christ” we all have to go through pain but its not in vain. Its pain that we must go through to see revival, to see a miracle, to help save a soul, to fight for the lost, to reach this lost generation. We must endure the pain and focus on the big picture. Have our mindset on what truly matters!!! REVIVAL!

  36. There is only one God, and he makes people right with himself only by faith, whether they are Jews or Gentiles.
    Romans 3:30 NLT

    The same God.is for us that is also for the Jews. What he desires is for us to be right or establish that relationship or connection with Him. There are no actions we can do to be right with Him but by faith believing what is said in His word, believing Jesus we can have that connection.

  37. 5“But,” some might say, “our sinfulness serves a good purpose, for it helps people see how righteous God is. Isn’t it unfair, then, for him to punish us?” (This is merely a human point of view.)

    Many actually believe this, that God will forgive no matter what sin you do. Yes God forgives, but if you willingly commit sin, you know its a sin, will God forgive. At this point, your not living a righteous life, you are taking God for granted, that he will forgive anyway.

  38. 23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

    24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

    25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;

  39. 5 But if our unrighteousness commend the righteousness of God, what shall we say? Is God unrighteous who taketh vengeance? (I speak as a man)

    6 God forbid: for then how shall God judge the world?

    7 For if the truth of God hath more abounded through my lie unto his glory; why yet am I also judged as a sinner?

    8 And not rather, (as we be slanderously reported, and as some affirm that we say,) Let us do evil, that good may come? whose damnation is just.

    9 What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin;

    10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:

    11 There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.

    This is a good reminder that we need to return evil with good..
