Romans 3:23

Atoning Sacrifice of Christ’s Blood

(Read Romans 3:21-26)

Must guilty man remain under wrath? Is the wound forever incurable? No; blessed be God, there is another way laid open for us. This is the righteousness of God; the righteousness of his ordaining, providing and accepting. It is by that faith which has Jesus Christ for its object; an anointed Saviour, so Jesus Christ signifies. Justifying faith respects Christ as a Saviour, in all his three anointed offices, as Prophet, Priest, and King; trusting in him, accepting him, and cleaving to him: in all these, Jews and Gentiles alike welcome to God through Christ. There is no difference, his righteousness is upon all that believe; not only offered to them but put upon them as a crown, as a robe. It is free grace, mere mercy; there is nothing in us to deserve such favours. It comes freely unto us, but Christ bought it and paid the price. And faith has special regard to the blood of Christ, as that which made the atonement. God, in all this, declares his righteousness. It is plain that he hates sin when nothing less than the blood of Christ would satisfy for it. And it would not agree with his justice to demand the debt when the Surety has paid it, and he has accepted that payment in full satisfaction.

21 But now apart from the law, a righteousness of God has been revealed, being testified by the law and the prophets; 22 even the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ to all and on all those who believe. For there is no distinction, 23 for all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God;
