Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 05/07/2023

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Romans

Key Text: Romans 3:21-26


Avg Guy: When it comes to justification, I have so many questions!

SBC Host: Okay.

Avg Guy: Well, for starters, WHAT IS IT?? … Is it MORE than the removal of sin?… Are we simply pardoned by God? And if so, how can God be JUST if he gives the wicked a pass and declares them as righteous?! Surely THAT would be a travesty of justice!

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Romans and shows in our passage that not only does Paul address these questions, but throughout the rest of the book of Romans, he expands upon these truths.

For THIS is the heart of the gospel.

The following are questions* to help you think about the sermon, as well as offer a set of discussion questions for family worship, or gathering together in other settings. My prayer is that these questions will allow you to dwell longer, and meditate more, upon God’s holy Word and will be fodder for sanctifying conversations. — M.S. 

  1. What kind of righteousness is provided in the Gospel? (3:21)
  2. What kind of righteousness can never be ours? (3:21)
  3. How and when was the righteousness of God first made known to mankind? (3:21)
  4. How has this righteousness of God been made available to mankind? (3:22)
  5. How is this righteousness of God given to us or made our own? (3:22)
  6. For whom is this righteousness of God intended? (3:22-23)
  7. Verses 24-25 describe God’s act of providing righteousness for mankind.  In your own words define these characteristics of His work for us:
    1. Justified
    2. Gift
    3. By His grace
    4. Redemption
    5. Propitiation in His blood
  8. How did God’s act of providing Jesus Christ for us demonstrate His justice? (3:24-26)
*Note that these are the same questions as Part 1 of this sermon.
