  2. 2. Monday 25 July 2011
  3. 3. A. GOD IS RIGHTEOUSRom 3:25-26 God presentedChrist as a sacrifice of atonement,through the shedding of his blood—to be received by faith. He didthis to demonstrate hisrighteousness, because in hisforbearance he had left the sinscommitted beforehandunpunished— he did it todemonstrate his righteousness atthe present time, so as to be justand the one who justifies thosewho have faith in Jesus.Monday 25 July 2011
  4. 4. God is righteous and cannot turnfrom that - he does not, andcannot allow sin, and all who dosin come under his judgment.God does not sin in any way -the Gospel does not make lightof sin but exalts God who bearsall the judgements andpunishments which are rightlythe result of sin - God does thisin love and enables the sinner topass from condemnation torighteousness.Jn 3:18, 5:24, Rom 8:1, 1 Cor11:32Monday 25 July 2011
  5. 5. B. THE SELF-RIGHTEOUSNESS OF MANRom 10:3 -Since they did notknow the righteousness of Godand sought to establish theirown, they did not submit toGod’s righteousness.Isa 64:6 -All of us have becomelike one who is unclean, and allour righteous acts are like filthyrags; we all shrivel up like a leaf,and like the wind our sinssweep us away.Monday 25 July 2011
  6. 6. Rom 3:9-18 records sin as God sees it and fully describes mans condition. In society we have man made standards for righteousness - yet each stands before God and is judged as God sees them, not by other men. Only through God’s grace and his provision in Christ will anyone enter heaven.Monday 25 July 2011
  7. 7. What then? Are we Jews any betteroff? No, not at all. For we have already Rom 3:9-18 records sincharged that all, both Jews and asGreeks, are under sin, fullyis written: God sees it and as it"None is righteous, no,condition. one describes mans not one; nounderstands; no one seeks for God. All In society we have manhave turned aside; together they have made standards forbecome worthless; no one does good,notrighteousness - yet each even one.""Their throat is an open grave; they use stands before God and istheir tongues toGod sees them, judged as deceive.""The venomof asps is under their lips." not by other men. Only"Their mouth is full of curses and through God’s grace andbitterness.""Their feet are swift to shed his provision in Christ willblood; in their paths are ruin andmisery, and the way of peace they have anyone enter heaven.not known.""There is no fear of Godbefore their eyes."Monday 25 July 2011

  10. 10. C. 1. IMPUTATION IS SHOWN IN ADAM’S SIN BEING IMPUTED TO THE WHOLE HUMAN RACERom 5:12-21, and also thesin of man is imputed toChrist when he became a sinoffering for the whole world -2 Cor 5:14, Heb 2:9, 1 Jn2:2Righteousness from God, inChrist, is imputed to all whobelieve - 1 Cor 1:30, 2 Cor5:21Monday 25 July 2011
  11. 11. Obviously this is not byworks, observing the lawetc. - Rom 3:21 - But nowapart from the law therighteousness of God hasbeen made known, towhich the Law and theProphets testify.Being imputed with therighteousness of Godmeans it is not affected byhow good or bad theperson is.Monday 25 July 2011
  12. 12. C. 2. THE RESULT OF IMPUTATION IS SEEN IN THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF CHRIST BEING ON A BELIEVER WHEN WE ARE IN CHRIST We are united with Christ by the HSp - God then sees us as his own son - Jn 17:23 - he loves and accepts us - and also accounts to us the righteousness of God 2 Cor 5:21 -For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. Rom 3:21-22 - But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law, although the Law and the Prophets bear witness to it—the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe.Monday 25 July 2011

If he has done youany wrong or owes you anything,charge it to me.Monday 25 July 2011
  14. 14. C. 4. IMPUTATION AFFECTS THE STANDING AND NOT THE STATEIt is put upon us - eventhough we still sin - it isnothing to do with ourworks - yet it is aneternal standing for ourlives.Monday 25 July 2011
  15. 15. C. 5. IMPUTED RIGHTEOUSNESS IS THE GROUND OF JUSTIFICATION NT - righteousness and justify are from the same root. God declares as justified forever the one whom he sees in Christ. Justification is not a feeling it is a certain fact for the mind of God. Rungnado May Day Stadium - seats 150,000Monday 25 July 2011
  16. 16.
