21 But now the righteousness of God has been
manifested apart from the law, although the Law and
the Prophets bear witness to it— 22 the
righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for
all who believe. For there is no distinction: 23 for all
have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 and
are justified by his grace as a gift, through the
redemption that is in Christ Jesus, 25 whom God put
forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received
by faith. This was to show God's righteousness,
because in his divine forbearance he had passed over
former sins. 26 It was to show his righteousness at
the present time, so that he might be just and the
justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.

• 5 I am the LORD, and there is no other, besides
me there is no God…And there is no other god
besides me, a righteous God and a Savior; there is
none besides me. 22 “Turn to me and be saved,
all the ends of the earth! For I am God, and there
is no other. Isaiah 45:5, 21-23
• 4 “The Rock, his work is perfect, for all his ways
are justice. A God of faithfulness and without
iniquity, just and upright is he. Deuteronomy 32:4
• 11 God is a righteous judge, and a God who feels
indignation every day. 12 If a man does not
repent, God will whet his sword; he has bent and
readied his bow Psalm 7:11-12
For we have already charged that all, both Jews and
Greeks, are under sin, 10 as it is written: “None is
righteous, no, not one; 11 no one understands; no
one seeks for God. 12 All have turned aside;
together they have become worthless; no one does
good, not even one.” 13 “Their throat is an open
grave; they use their tongues to deceive.” “The
venom of asps is under their lips.” 14 “Their mouth
is full of curses and bitterness.” 15 “Their feet are
swift to shed blood; 16 in their paths are ruin and
misery, 17 and the way of peace they have not
known.” 18 “There is no fear of God before their
eyes.” Romans 3:9-18
• 19 Now we know that whatever the law
says it speaks to those who are under the
law, so that every mouth may be
stopped, and the whole world may be
held accountable to God. 20 For by works
of the law no human being will be
justified in his sight, since through the
law comes knowledge of sin.
Romans 3:19-20
• 4 How then can man be in the right
before God? How can he who is born
of woman be pure? 5 Behold, even
the moon is not bright, and the stars
are not pure in his eyes; 6 how much
less man, who is a maggot, and the
son of man, who is a worm!”
Job 25:4-6
BUT NOW!
• 21 But now the righteousness of God
has been manifested apart from the
law, although the Law and the
Prophets bear witness to it— 22 the
righteousness of God through faith in
Jesus Christ for all who believe.
• 5 But he was wounded for our
transgressions; he was crushed for our
iniquities; upon him was the
chastisement that brought us
peace, and with his stripes we are
healed. 6 All we like sheep have gone
astray; we have turned—every one—to
his own way; and the LORD has laid on
him the iniquity of us all. Isaiah 53:5-6
16 yet we know that a person is not justified
by works of the law but through faith in
Jesus Christ, so we also have believed in
Christ Jesus, in order to be justified by faith
in Christ and not by works of the law,
because by works of the law no one will be
justified. 21 I do not nullify the grace of
God, for if righteousness were through the
law, then Christ died for no purpose.
Galatians 2:16, 21
For there is no distinction: 23 for all
have sinned and fall short of the glory
of God, 24 and are justified by his
grace as a gift, through the
redemption that is in Christ Jesus,
25 whom God put forward as a
propitiation by his blood, to be
received by faith.
• Justification
– Impute Christ’s righteousness
– Expiate the believer’s sins
– Once for all declare “as righteous as Christ”
• Sanctification
– A process on earth done by the Holy Spirit to
impart the Character of Christ into a person
– God does not justify those He does not sanctify
• Glorification
– In the visible presence of Christ Christ’s
righteousness completely imparted into the
believer
• 21 For our sake he made him to
be sin who knew no sin, so that in
him we might become the
righteousness of God.
2 Corinthians 5:21
• Redemption/Ransom:
– Our need from our bondage under sin
• Propitiation:
– Our need to satisfy God’s wrath towards our sins
• Christ’s blood/Substitutionary death:
– Our need to take away our sin and guilt
• 13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law
by becoming a curse for us Galatians 3:13
• 45 For even the Son of Man came not to be
served but to serve, and to give his life as a
ransom for many.” Mark 10:45
• 18 knowing that you were ransomed from the
futile ways inherited from your forefathers, not
with perishable things such as silver or gold,
19 but with the precious blood of Christ, like that
of a lamb without blemish or spot.
1 Peter 1:18-19
• 10 In this is love, not that we have loved God but
that he loved us and sent his Son to be the
propitiation for our sins. 1 John 4:10
• This was to show God's righteousness,
because in his divine forbearance he had
passed over former sins. 26 It was to show his
righteousness at the present time, so that he
might be just and the justifier of the one who
has faith in Jesus.
• 4 I glorified you on earth, having accomplished
the work that you gave me to do. John 17:4
• God’s primary purpose in salvation is to
Glorify Himself & display His righteousness.
2:1 And you were dead in the trespasses and sins 2 in
which you once walked, following the course of this
world, following the prince of the power of the air, the
spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience—
3 among whom we all once lived in the passions of our
flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind,
and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of
mankind. 4 But God, being rich in mercy, because of the
great love with which he loved us, 5 even when we were
dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with
Christ—by grace you have been saved— 6 and raised us
up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly
places in Christ Jesus, 7 so that in the coming ages he
might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in
kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. 8 For by grace you
have been saved through faith. And this is not your own
doing; it is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that
no one may boast. Ephesians 2:1-9
6 In this you rejoice, though now for a little
while, if necessary, you have been grieved by
various trials, 7 so that the tested genuineness
of your faith—more precious than gold that
perishes though it is tested by fire—may be
found to result in praise and glory and honor at
the revelation of Jesus Christ. 8 Though you
have not seen him, you love him. Though you do
not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice
with joy that is inexpressible and filled with
glory, 9 obtaining the outcome of your faith, the
salvation of your souls. 1 Peter 1:6-9
