Righteousness in Romans (10) Put Right by Faith

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The basic meaning of ‘dikaio” is to be “put right” or to be “rectified.” Paul’s message to the Romans is that those who trust in Jesus are “put right” by faith.

All are freely put right by His grace through the ransom that is in Christ Jesus (Rom 3:24).

By dying on the cross, Jesus paid the ransom that set us free from the domination of the spiritual powers of evil. That put us right. It rectified our situation.

We consider (logizomai) that a person is put right by faith apart from the works of the Torah (Rom 3:28).

Jesus did for people who trust in him what the Torah was not intended to do. It was never intended to be a complete solution to the problem of sin.

Since we have been put right through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ (Rom 5:1).

Because Jesus’ death rectified our situation, our guilt and shame no longer force us to draw away from God.

Having been declared right now in his blood, we shall be rescued through him from the spirit of Wrath (Rom 5:9).

By shedding his blood on the cross, Jesus rescued us from the control of the spirit called Wrath and his mates.

Those whom He called, he also put right (Rom 8:30).

Jesus called us, so he put our situation right in every way.

Paul wrote a similar message to the Galatian Christians because Jews were trying to get them to comply with the ethnic markers of the law by eating separately.

We have put our faith in Christ Jesus that we may be put right by faith in the Messiah and not by the works of the law because, by the works of the law, no one will be put right (Gal 2:16).

This was God’s plan all along.

Scripture foresaw that God would put right the Gentiles by faith and announced the gospel in advance to Abraham: “All nations will be blessed through you” (Gal 3:8).

The purpose of the law was to provide protection until the Messiah came.

The law was our guardian/escort until Christ came that we might be put right by trusting (Gal 3:24).
