Intro: Missing in Paul’s Biblical example of justification (6-9) is any mention of law or works of any kind. This is not by accident as Paul proves through the OT scriptures that justification is the result of God’s work not good works!

 

  • The example of justification (6-9)
    1. Abraham- (6-7)
      1. Means
      2. Result
    2. Scripture (8-9)

      2. Result 
  • The enemy of justification (10-12)
    1. The requirement
      1. Demands
      2. Design

  • The enablement of justification (13-14)

Conclusion: “For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one my boast” Glory be to God for His marvelous grace!
