UNITED BY FAITH

Part 9 Romans 3:27-31

3 IMPLICATIONS OF JUSTIFICATION BY FAITH
“This one and firm rock, which we call the doctrine of justification, is the chief
article of the whole Christian doctrine, which comprehends the understanding of all
godliness.” -- Luther

1)Do not boast in yourself. (3:27-28)
2)Remember, you are justified by faith. (3:29-30)
3) Live holy lives! (3:31)

As obedient children, do not be conformed to the passions of your former
ignorance, but as he who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your
conduct, since it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.”
(1 Peter 1:14-16 ESV)
