Growing In Grace Part 4

Romans 3:19-26  Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. Therefore by the deeds of the law no flesh will be justified in His sight, for by the law is the knowledge of sin. 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, 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 4:4-8  Now to him who works, the wages are not counted as grace but as debt. But to him who does not work but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness, just as David also describes the blessedness of the man to whom God imputes righteousness apart from works: “Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, And whose sins are covered; Blessed is the man to whom the Lord shall not impute sin.”

Romans 5:1-6  Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope. Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us. For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.

What The Apostle Paul is teaching us in these scriptures, is that The Grace Of GOD Is Freely Given to us, so that we might learn to appreciate The Love And Mercy Of GOD; and also to Help us develop a desire to be Righteous and Just. Simultaneously, GOD Is Showing us that we cannot achieve these Godly Spiritual Attributes by applying merely our own mortal strengths and abilities. GOD Created us In His Image And Likeness to be like Him… to Have Communion With Him as His Own Children… And To Love us And To Bless us. His Godly Attributes, which we were Designed to personify, require His Very Presence Within us. All Creation (including The Incarnation Of JESUS) has come into existence for these Selfsame Purposes!!! GOD Has Bequeathed an exorbitantly High Honor upon us!!

Glory and Praise to The Only Living GOD!
