Nothing to Boast About

Paul says that we have nothing to boast about. Not only that but the worst of criminals, if he trusts Christ’s death and resurrection alone for his salvation will be considered righteious before God.

Here’s my outline:

AIM-THANK GOD FOR HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS.

SUBJECT SENTENCE-FORGIVENESS AND RIGHTEOUSNESS IS THE GRACE GIFT OF GOD.

I. JUSTIFICATION BY FAITH 1-2

PRINCIPLE WE RECEIVE CHRIST’S RIGHTEOUSNESS THROUGH THE CHANNEL OF FAITH

II. WORKS VERSES FAITH 4-5

PRINCIPLE-OUR WORKS ARE AS FILTHY RAGS CHRIST RIGHTEOUSNESS ALONE TAKES IT AWAY

III. BLESSINGS FROM FAITH6-8

PRINCIPLE-OUR BLESSINGS OF FAITH IS THAT OUR SINS ARE FORGIVEN, COVERED AND REMOVED
