Receive God’s Gift of Righteousness

  1. How should the truth of verse 21 impact how we read our Bibles? What happens when we focus more on the commands in the Bible instead of the gospel promised in the Bible?

  2. In this text we see that justification by faith involves two aspects: (1) forgiveness and (2) the gift of righteousness. What happens if we only hold to the forgiveness part?

  3. In verse 22-23 we are reminded that righteousness is found in Christ alone, which we receive by faith. In what/ whom are you tempted to try and nd righteousness other than Christ?

  4. What is the most helpful thing to you in this text or the sermon on the text?
