How Can I Be Right With God?

The most important question for humanity is: ‘How can we be made right with God?’

The Apostle Paul has carefully, and convincingly, shown we are all wrong with God (Romans 1:18–3:18): there is no one right with God, not even one.

Today’s passage brings a sigh of relief (Romans 3:21–26). But now… God gives the free gift of righteousness through his Son Jesus. It is by grace we are saved.

Three images describe this good news:

  • Justification: God the judge of the law court justifies declaring us ‘not guilty;’
  • Redemption: God has set us free (redeemed) from sin by paying the price of His blood on the Cross; and
  • Sacrifice of atonement: God has provided the ‘sacrifice of atonement’ in Jesus to take the wrath we deserve.

All we have to do is have faith alone in Jesus as the way we are made right with God.

In Christ, Tory Cayzer.
