Romans 3:21-4:25 | EP 4 | Justified

45m | Feb 26, 2023

In episode 4 of the After Church Podcast, host Trey Bailey chats with Kurt Petersheim and Gary Thompson about Romans 3:21-4:25 and the GOOD NEWS, the Gospel of Christ. We all need to be reminded of God's goodness to us in Christ.

  • Has anyone ever vouched for you?
  • Or have you ever vouched for anyone?
  • Have you ever paid someone’s bill/debt?

Key idea:

Justification by faith (“to declare righteous”):

  • New status - right with God and forgiven
  • New family - included in God’s people
  • New future - transformed life IN CHRIST

Questions for reflection:

  1. Share a gift that you received that you felt like was “too much”- more than should have been spent on you, more than you deserved? How did it make you feel in receiving such a gift?
  2. Why do we, instead of receiving God’s gift of Jesus to save us, try to earn God’s salvation(or even God’s love and approval)?
  3. In what ways are you still trying to earn God’s salvation and love?
  4. How can we help each other to remember that faith in Jesus makes us righteous and right with God?
