Week 6, Day 3

Message 6: The Source of Salvation—God’s Love,
The Basis of Salvation—God’s Righteousness,
and The God-man Savior

II. The basis of God’s salvation being God’s righteousness—Rom. 3:21–22

B. Man ate of that cursed tree, so according to God’s righteousness we must die; because of God’s righteousness He must condemn man.

C. God loves man, yet He had to condemn him; so, for the sake of God’s righteousness, the Lord Jesus was put to death on the cross; there, on the cross, He was made sin for us, and God condemned sin in the flesh—Rom. 8:3; Hymns, #1003.

Romans 8:3 For that which the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God, sending His own Son in the likeness of the flesh of sin and concerning sin, condemned sin in the flesh.

D. God’s righteousness condemns us, but by Christ’s righteous death we are justified; through His twofold righteousness, we can see His love, His righteousness, and His wisdom—2 Peter 1:1.

2 Peter 1:1 Simon Peter, a slave and apostle of Jesus Christ, to those who have been allotted faith equally precious as ours in the righteousness of our God and Savior, Jesus Christ.
