Read Romans 3 today.

Romans 3:23-28 NLT[23] For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. [24] Yet God freely and graciously declares that we are righteous. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins. [25] For God presented Jesus as the sacrifice for sin. People are made right with God when they believe that Jesus sacrificed his life, shedding his blood. This sacrifice shows that God was being fair when he held back and did not punish those who sinned in times past, [26] for he was looking ahead and including them in what he would do in this present time. God did this to demonstrate his righteousness, for he himself is fair and just, and he declares sinners to be right in his sight when they believe in Jesus.
[27] Can we boast, then, that we have done anything to be accepted by God? No, because our acquittal is not based on obeying the law. It is based on faith. [28] So we are made right with God through faith and not by obeying the law.
In verse 27 of this chapter we find the words, “our acquittal is not based on obeying the law. It is based on faith.” It seems the presence of an acquittal assumes the presence of a trial. What evidence would you present at a trial to determine if you had met God’s standard? According to Paul, if your evidence seeks to prove you have met the standard by the good things you have done, that your good things outweigh your bad things, your case will fail.
What do you believe about Jesus? What evidence would you present to prove this is what you believe?
