People's Bible Notes for Romans 3:22

Ro 3:22 Even the righteousness of God . . . by faith of Jesus Christ. The Gospel, where we are "justified by faith, and have peace with God through Jesus Christ" (Ro 5:1). All were guilty under the law, but the law and prophets pointed to forgiveness in Christ. Unto all and upon all them that believe. There is justification for every sincere believer, whether Jew or Gentile, for there is no difference between them, but not for the unbelieving impenitent.

Discussion for Romans 3

  • Joyce Butler on Romans 3:22
    I have been having very intrusive sinful thoughts. I have prayed and prayed. Sometimes I wonder where is GOD for me! I don't even have assurance of salvation or heaven anymore. Can someone pray for me or help me to understand?

    @ Joyce B. Many are going through varied pains and suffering, both mental and physical, from sinful thoughts to losing faith and having to struggle to regain who we want to be in having a close or closer relationship with God. The great upheaval in the world right now is causing fear and confusion among so many. Sometimes, as humans it is easier to run away from reality into dark corners to seek solace, only to fail and fall.

    Sincere advice. Seek council of a trusted 'bible based' pastor. (they can talk on the phone or email, if you can not leave your house) Be honest about what you are dealing with, so they can pray with you and give firm council. Rid yourself of anything in your house that is causing this trouble/temptaion and do not turn it on again, buy it again, etc. Once it's gone, let it be gone. If your health is good, consider fasting for a few days and stay in prayer. Talk with God, so you are not alone when these thoughts come to trouble your heart. Walk, exercise, clean.

    God Bless and prayers are with you.
  • Amen and Amen on Romans 3:22
    It 's so easy to change the meaning of a sentence or doctrine with just a very slight change or omission, "the faith in " versus "the faith of " It 's a beautiful thing to witness how many of my brothers and or sisters in Christ, have refused to fall for the devil 's trap of believing that the correct translation is "faith in ". It 's just marvelous!!
  • Paul on Romans 3:22
    Most other translations use "faith in Jesus " whereas the KJV uses "faith of Jesus ". These words bring two totally different meanings. "Faith in Jesus " represents what we did or do. We did nothing to deserve the gift of God 's righteousness. It was "the faith OF Jesus " that makes it possible for us to be able to receive this gift of righteousness. It is the righteousness of God unto all and upon all who believe. Unto given to us upon put on us who believes. That righteousness makes us like Christ. We will still sin and will need to repent. But it 's that righteousness that covers us and protects believers of Christ from the flames of hell.
  • Daniel on Romans 3:22
    I believe that His righteousness became mine because of Christ, that He is the source of it. My only part and response would just be believing in Him. When I am thinking of His salvation on me, Oh it's all from Him, It's all because of Him. He gave me this salvation and I thank Him,I believed on Him and I am believing in Him.
  • Conservative Christian on Romans 3:22
    The faith of Jesus is the righteousness of God. If we believe God, through Jesus Christ, that the Word of God is true, then we are given the power by way of His Spirit to become children of God. The heart has to be converted. Remember, we are saved by Grace through Faith (I believe this is the Faith of Jesus). My faith has no power to save anyone, much less myself. I have to believe God and it will show by what I do. Faith is in Jesus. Christ is everything!! To receive Jesus is to receive His Word because He is the Word. If we don't feed on Jesus, there is no life (eternal). We feed on Jesus by reading and studying His Word and then by putting it into practice, which shows we believe. We pray to God, by way of Jesus with faith, believing that we receive Grace by what we believe. The two main requirements for salvation is to believe and repent. If we don't turn away from sin, then we don't believe and we know what happens to those who continue in sin or those who turn back to sin.
    Gotta go!
