His Suffering Was My Saving Grace…

The “Via Dolorosa,” Sung by Broadway Musical Star (Miss Saigon) Lea Salonga

“But now a righteousness from God, apart from law, has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify.
This righteousness from God come through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe.
There is no difference,
for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by His grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.
God presented Him as a sacrifice of atonement through faith in His blood.   He did this to demonstrate His justice, because in His forbearance, He had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished–
He did it to demonstrate His justice at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus…

 

Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,
through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand…

 

You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly…

 

But God demonstrates His own love for us in this:  While we were still sinners, Christ died for us…

 

Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all men, because all sinned…

 

For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man the many will be made righteous…

 

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord,”
~Romans 3:21-26; 5:1, 6-8, 12,19; 6:23

 

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life,” ~John 3:16
