But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed … through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all who believe.
Romans 3:21.22

Justification by faith
Paul had demonstrated that mankind has no righteousness that is valid before God. Not even the law of Moses can help him, for the law with its commandments only exposes his guilt, since he cannot keep it.

“But now”: this points to a new era, the one in which we are living now and that is often called “the age of grace”. At the present time the gospel of God’s righteousness in grace is being offered. Whereas the law of Sinai referred to the people of Israel, the offer of grace now addresses everyone in the gospel without making any distinction. No-one need appear before God in his wretched state any longer, for His righteousness is offered to all. That is the sense of the phrase “to all”.

How can sinful man obtain his part in this righteousness? Not by deeds of the law, but by faith – not any faith, but by “faith in Jesus Christ”. Through deeds man achieves nothing; he can and must take hold of what Christ accomplished in His atoning work on the cross by faith.

That is the pre-requisite, for “the righteousness of God” comes exclusively “on all who believe”. Whoever does not place his trust on himself and his supposed righteousness but admits his guilt before God and believes in Christ, he is saved, is righteous before God and safe from judgment.

Today’s reading: Joshua 9:1-16 · 1 Corinthians 7:25-40
