I like this passage

Discussion in 'Bible Study' started by da_man, Jan 17, 2008.

  1. I like this passage


    16Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.
    17But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is therefore Christ the minister of sin? God forbid.
    18For if I build again the things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor.
    19For I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God.
    20I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
    21I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.
  2. Again, reminds me of the sermon that I heard last weekend - Grace by faith...and not works alone.

    Grace is given for free. Our faith is the seed that we nurture and help to grow. Works are the fruits that come when we truly have faith.
  3. Amen!!! Gospel truth.... indeed... the very heart of the Gospel itself!!!

    Sola Fide!

    Sola Gratia!

    Solus Christus!

    Sola Dei Gloria!!!!

    salvation by grace through faith alone so that no one can boast!!!!
