“The Gift of Grace” – Romans 3:23-24

Romans 3:23-24

“for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus,” 
This is a powerhouse of a verse. It is one of the most widely used passages in explaining how justification and salvation work. You could spend hours digging into the terms in this verse,  like “glory”, “justified” and “redemption.” One of the resources that we recommend, the Bible Project, does a beautiful job explaining God’s grace, the central idea of this verse, as well as the whole book of Galatians.

Read Romans 3:23-24 again after watching the video to get the full concept of God’s grace, and then spend a little time looking at this wonderful verse through the lens of the HEAR method: 
Highlight – what words or phrases jump out at you? 
Explain – what does the passage mean? 
Apply – how does the passage intersect with your life today? 
Respond – how is God leading you to respond?
