“Righteousness Is a Five-Letter Word” from the series Insights on Romans by Charles R. Swindoll
After dedicating almost three chapters of his letter to the Romans to setting forth
humanity’s need for the gospel (1:18 - 3:20), Paul moved on with the words, “But
now . . .” (3:21). In the rest of the third chapter, he presented the great truths regarding
how one can have right standing before God—how a sinner can be “justified.” Having
made it clear that righteousness is a matter of faith, not works, Paul chose to illustrate
his point with a flesh-and-blood example: Abraham. By showing the reader that “the
father of the Jews” was declared righteous by faith and not by works, Paul made a
compelling argument that all can understand.
