Devotional Notes Romans 3
B1 What does this mean?
C1 The Advantage of the Jew
D1 God gave His message through the Jews. Jesus is a Jew, too.
D2 Jewish unbelief will not stop God’s plans.
D4 God is correct and righteous to judge and sentence Law breakers.
C2 All People Are Sinners and Cannot Seek God
D1 No one righteous. Does this mean Jesus sinned?
E2 The plain, normal sense understands this passage is a quote from the Old Testament.
F1 Robertson writes: [Verses 10-12 come from]Psalm 14:1-3; first half of 13 as far as εδολιουσαν from Psalm 5:9, the second half from Psalm 140:3; verse 14 from Psalm 10:7; 15-17 from an abridgment of Isaiah 59:7f.; verse 18 from Psalm 35:1.
E3 Jesus had not yet been born of the Virgin, so the quote of everyone being a sinner is correct.
E4 Jesus has finished His earthly ministry by the time Paul wrote this letter, so we understand that all humans are sinners in thoughts, desires, words, and deeds EXCEPT Jesus Christ. See 1 Peter 2:22, 2 Corinthians 5:21, Hebrews 4:15, 1 John 3:5, etc.
E5 Sin’s effects are thoughts, desires, words, and deeds.
E6 Sin has consequences.
E7 Verse 19, since the Jew is guilty because of the Law, now all are guilty because of the Law.
C2 Salvation Not Through the Law but Through Faith
D1 The Law and keeping it does not bring forgiveness of sins, salvation, and fellowship with God.
D2 Believing God does.
D3 Jesus is Savior of Jew and Gentile.
D4 Salvation is the same. It is by grace alone through faith alone in Jesus Christ alone.
D5 Jesus’s work on the cross was public.
D6 This death of Jesus is proof that Jesus suffered for our sins if we meet His conditions.
D1 What advantages of Jews are listed?
D2 How can God be considered holy if sin and evil is in the universe?
D3 Is God’s grace so great that we can sin more to receive more grace? Explain.
D4 Why can’t keeping Mosaic Law bring salvation?
D5 What is the purpose of the Mosaic Law?
B2 How do I apply this to my life? Thank you for your theology, O Lord.
