Series: What is the Gospel?
Category: Salvation, Gospel, Grace
Speaker: Jason Williams
In this sermon, we looked at Romans 3:9-24, in which the Apostle Paul addresses the universal nature of sin. Paul begins by affirming that both Jews and Gentiles are under the power and judgment of sin. Referring to several Old Testament passages, Paul makes the point that no one is righteous or seeks God on his or her own, and that the sinfulness of humanity is made visible through the words that come out of our mouths and our violence toward one another. Paul concludes that every human has sinned and has fallen short of God’s glory. He ends this section of Romans with the good news of the Gospel: while all humans are sinners and under the curse of sin, all who believe the Gospel are justified by God’s grace as a gift through faith in Jesus.
