Romans 3:21-32 – God’s Plan of Redemption

God’s Plan of Redemption for Men -Chapter 3:21-31

Because all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. (3:23). Men are hopeless, God has hope. God has offered a solution apart from the law! (3:21)

God has revealed His plan through His laws and prophets (3:21)

  • God will raise up someone else other than Moses to save us (Deut 18:15)
  • OT laws are the shadows of good things to come (Hebrew 10:1)
  • OT prophets have been prophesying about the Messiah (Isaiah 9:6, Isaiah 53)
  • God’s said those who were not His people will be His people (Hosea 2:23)

The righteousness of God is revealed in us when we believe in Jesus Christ. (3:22).

  •     there is no distinction, the gospel is offered to everyone (1 John 2:2) who believe. either men or women, Jews or gentiles, young or old, rich or poor. (3:22,3:30)

We are justified by His grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus (3:34)

  • salvation is grace from God, as a gift, there is nothing we can do to earn it (3:27)
  • however we need to accept the gift, only the one who accepts the gift will be saved (3:25)
  • Redemption
    • God redeems us from the law (Gal 4:5) with His blood (3:25)

God put forward as a propitiation by His blood, to be received by faith (3:25)

1. Propitiation – means:

  • mercy seat (cover of the ark of covenant) – before salvation we were before God’s judgment seat, after salvation we are before God’s mercy seat
  • Jesus covers our sins with His blood

2. We must receive by faith
3. The result – God’s righteousness is revealed, and believers are justified (3:26)

Do we overthrow the law by this faith? (3:31)

  • No, on the contrary we upload the law
  • Jesus have not came to abolish the Law, but to fulfill them (Matt 5:17)
