Ro 3:28 Therefore. The conclusion of the line of argument is now reached. No man is justified by the deeds of the law (no article before "law" in the Greek), but by faith, the faith that brings into loving obedience to Christ.

    1 John 1:8-10King James Version KJV 8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

    I think. Romans 3 means that if you've accepted the Lord as your savior and die in your sin he is just to forgive you do to your lack of knowledge.When you know no better you do know better.When you know better you fo better.Do you think your earthly father will abandon you because you do wrong.No.Well your heavenly father loves you more.He's a merciful God.Love covers a multitude of sin.

    This verse shows that every person living has sinned. We have all inherited sin from our imperfect ancestors, Adam and Eve.

    God is love. Fear means to OBEY GOD'S WORDS AND AVOID DOING EVIL . Fear not and don't let your heart be troubled for God is always with us. GOD LOVES US SO MUCH HE SENT HIS SON JESUS CHRIST TO US SO THAT WE ALL MUST HAVE LIFE IN ABUNDANCE. JESUS WAS SENT TO THE WORLD NOT TO CONDEMNED BUT THE WORLD MIGHT BE SAVED. THANKS TO THE BLOOD OF JESUS. I WILL PRAISE YOU JESUS FOREVER AND WILL TRUST YOU AMN

    The Fear of The Lord is reverence and obedience. Bowing our heads in prayer, kneeling before Him in church, etc. That is being reverent. I think reverence also implies submitting ourselves to God the best we can. Thank you for the fellowship Peace of Christ be with us all
