Living in Righteousness means…

1.   No room for _____________________. (27-28)

“What happens now to human pride of achievement? There is no more room for it. Why, because failure to keep the Law has killed it? Not at all, but because the whole matter is now on a different plane—believing instead of achieving…” Romans 3:27-28a (Phillips)

“It is from Him that you are in Christ Jesus, who became wisdom from God for us—our righteousness, sanctification, and redemption— in order that, as it is written: Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.” I Corinthians 1:30-31 (CSB)

2.   No room for ______________________. (29)

“For you are saved by grace through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God’s gift— not from works, so that no one can boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9 (CSB)

“For those of you who were baptized into Christ have been clothed with Christ. There is no Jew or Greek, slave or free, male and female; since you are all one in Christ Jesus.” Galatians 3:26-27 (CSB)

3.   No room for ______________________. (30-31)

“Well then, if we are saved by faith, does this mean that we no longer need to obey God’s laws? Just the opposite! In fact, only when we trust Jesus can we truly obey Him.” Romans 3:31 (LB)

 Justification by Faith means…

  •  Jesus alone ______________________

  •  Leads us to _____________ not pride.

“Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for ‘God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.’ Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time He may exalt you.”’  I Peter 5:5-6 (ESV)
