What Were You Saved From? (Romans 3:23-26)Lucas Boring, January 22, 2014
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Wednesday service
We are all sinners. In order for us to be justified, someone had to pay the debt. We want to look at ourselves and think that we are a good person with only one sin making us bad. God still punishes sin. We were all born into sin. If could just see what God has saved us from we would all worship differently. We do not deserve to be saved from the sin and death but God shows grace and mercy. In order for us to receive mercy God had to show justice. Jesus walked this earth spotless and perfect but in an instant He took on ALL of our sins and shame. God had to show justice to His son because Jesus took on our sin and God can't look upon sin. Many of people have been beaten and crucified but Jesus was different as He took upon our sins. As a christian we should not look at ourselves as being better than a lost. There will come a day when Christ comes back and our spiritual warfare and struggles will be over. No matter how hard one tries to think about how holy God is, our flesh will kick in and sin takes over. We will never be able to witness the awesomeness of Gods glory here on this earth in our flesh. Not until God transforms our body into our glorified bodies will we be able to see His glory in its fullness.

23For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; 24Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: 25Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; 26To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus. (KJV)
