Faith Alone (Worship Service, October 1st, 2017)

Title: Faith Alone

Passage: Romans 3:21-26

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: October 1st, 2017

One of the key questions for Martin Luther and John Calvin was, how is a man right with God? That is, how can a man be justified in the sight of God? This was central for the Reformers. Their answer, which they took from Scripture, was absolutely right: men and women are justified by faith alone. We also affirm the doctrine of justification by faith alone, not because the Reformers taught it, but because, as they rightly rediscovered, the Bible teaches it. God’s Word teaches faith alone in many different places, but I’ve selected Paul’s words in Romans 3:21-26 to draw it out for us this morning.
