since God is one

121214

Romans 3:25-31

25 God publicly displayed him at his death as the atoning sacrifice accessible through faith. This was to demonstrate his righteousness, because God in his restraint had passed over the sins previously committed. 26 This was also to demonstrate his righteousness in the present time, so that he would be just and the justifier of the one who lives because of Jesus’ faithfulness. 27 Who, then, can boast? No one! Why? Because works make a difference? No, but faith does! 28 For we understand that a person is declared righteous by faith apart from keeping the works of the law. 29 Or is God the God of the Jews only? Is he not the God of the Gentiles too? Yes, of the Gentiles too! 30 Since God is one, he will justify those who are circumcised by faith and the uncircumcised on account of faith. 31 Do we then abolish the law by having faith? Absolutely not! Instead we uphold the law.

since God is one

There is not a separate God for the Gentiles, nor is there a separate gospel for the Jews. The plan was fulfilled by Christ, and now it is made clear that all come to salvation by faith in the same Christ.

On judgment day, unbelievers will have to pay for their sins with their own lives. They will suffer eternal destruction. But believers will walk into eternal life – all under the same banner, worshipping the same God and living in the same kingdom.

Thank you LORD for the equality we have in Christ.
