3:28 We conclude then that a man is justified by faith - And even by this, not as it is a work, but as it receives Christ; and, consequently, has something essentially different from all our works whatsoever.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 3:28


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.

Discussion for Romans 3

    Do we make void the law by faith God forbid we ESTABLISH the law, what this means is the RIGHTEOUSNESS of the LAW is ESTABLISHED by faith,THE LAW IS THE VERY ESSENCE OF GOD, TO LOVE GOD WITH ALL OUR HEARTS AND MINDS IS FOREVER, THE 10 WILL NEVA BE DONE AWAY WITH BUT THE ONLY WAY THEY WILL BE FULFILED IS BY THE NEW BIRTH AS THEM THAT ARE BORN OF GOD CANNOT SIN.THATS HOW HE WILL FULFILL THE LAW.
  • Stephen F. Zielski
    As it was in the Kingdom of Heaven so will it be in like manner in the latter days of the Kingdom of God - Acts through Jude. Always the religious people who reject the indwelling Power of our Blessed Lords Holy Ghost which is speaking in Tongues made of the true and genuine Temple without hands unto His Everlasting Glory to come amen indeed. The Kingdom of God is not of this world and never was.

    Faith is the key to unlock the door to heaven.
  • Bobby
    Yes we need to ONLY trust in the blood of Jesus but if while were trusting we seemingly "sin" as life under law would say, we must understand we are no less righteous or worthy of God then we were 10 minutes before we missed God. And that is where the devil is messing with the church and messing them up. Jesus said I wish you were either hot or cold. Don't try to mix law with grace. Your Righteous
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    The Word of God confirms that "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus". We should depend ONLY on Jesus' Blood to wipe away our sins and unrighteousness.
  • Charles B Mountain
    Because God's chosen people,the Jews, rejected Christ as the messiah,he opened the the door of salvation to the Gentiles also. We are all one in Christ Jesus,if we believe and are baptized into Christ, according to the plan of salvation, and live our life by his word.Using God's word, as it is written, to govern our lives and guide us,all may experience Christianity and be acceptable.
