Bible Readings:

Mark 2:18 – 3:6
1 John 4:1-21

Sermon Outline:

Romans 3:21–26 (NKJV)

21 But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, 22 even the righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all who believe. For there is no difference; 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, 25 whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed, 26 to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.

Justification – the language of the law court
Reconciliation – the language of the personal relationship between friends and loved ones
Propitiation – the language of the temple worship – religious sacrifices
Redemption – the language of the slave market
