While We Were Still Sinners

Romans 5:6-11 English Standard Version (ESV) 6 For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. 7 For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die— 8 but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.9 Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more…

The God Who Cares About Human Character

2 Samuel 22:21-31 English Standard Version (ESV) 21 “The Lord dealt with me according to my righteousness;     according to the cleanness of my hands he rewarded me. 22 For I have kept the ways of the Lord     and have not wickedly departed from my God. 23 For all his rules were before me,     and from his statutes I did not turn aside. 24 I was blameless before him,     and I kept myself…

Peace, Access, and Joy in the Midst of Suffering

Romans 5:1-5 English Standard Version (ESV) Peace with God Through Faith 5 Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we[a] have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Through him we have also obtained access by faith[b] into this grace in which we stand, and we[c] rejoice[d] in hope of the glory of God. 3 Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, 4 and endurance produces character, and character produces…

That the Promise Might Stand

Romans 4:16-25 English Standard Version (ESV) 16 That is why it depends on faith, in order that the promise may rest on grace and be guaranteed to all his offspring—not only to the adherent of the law but also to the one who shares the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all, 17 as it is written, “I have made you the father of many nations”—in the…

Who Will Inherit the Earth?

Romans 4:13-15 English Standard Version (ESV) The Promise Realized Through Faith 13 For the promise to Abraham and his offspring that he would be heir of the world did not come through the law but through the righteousness of faith. 14 For if it is the adherents of the law who are to be the heirs, faith is null and the promise is void. 15 For the law brings wrath, but where…

To the One Who Does Not Work

Romans 4:1-8 English Standard Version (ESV) Abraham Justified by Faith 4 What then shall we say was gained by Abraham, our forefather according to the flesh? 2 For if Abraham was justified by works, he has something to boast about, but not before God. 3 For what does the Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness.” 4 Now to the one who works, his wages are not counted…

Both Just and Justifier

Romans 3:21-26 English Standard Version (ESV) The Righteousness of God Through Faith 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…

None Righteous, Not Even One

Romans 3:9-20 English Standard Version (ESV) No One Is Righteous 9 What then? Are we Jews[a] any better off?[b] No, not at all. 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…

Let God be True

Romans 3:1-8 English Standard Version (ESV) God’s Righteousness Upheld 3 Then what advantage has the Jew? Or what is the value of circumcision? 2 Much in every way. To begin with, the Jews were entrusted with the oracles of God. 3 What if some were unfaithful? Does their faithlessness nullify the faithfulness of God? 4 By no means! Let God be true though every one were a liar, as it is written, “That you may…

Dishonoring His Father

2 Samuel 16:15-23 English Standard Version (ESV) Absalom Enters Jerusalem 15 Now Absalom and all the people, the men of Israel, came to Jerusalem, and Ahithophel with him. 16 And when Hushai the Archite, David’s friend, came to Absalom, Hushai said to Absalom, “Long live the king! Long live the king!” 17 And Absalom said to Hushai, “Is this your loyalty to your friend? Why did you not go with your…
