Romans 3:28 – Justification by Faith


Romans 3:28


God has acted in Christ for human redemption, and that is a gift of a gracious God. A right relationship with God is by faith, not seeking God’s favor by good works.


This verse was one of the most important utterances Paul made in his Letter to the Romans, both for his time and for later history. One cannot achieve a right relationship with God by keeping regulations, even those prescribed by the law in the Old Testament. A right relationship exists where a person trusts in the promises of God set forth in the death and resurrection of God’s Son–that is, by faith.
