Romans, Part 6: "Why We Can't Save Ourselves" (Rom. 3:9-20)

Romans, Part 6: "Why We Can't Save Ourselves" (Rom. 3:9-20)

Why did God give us the law? Here, Paul says that it’s not to justify us; it’s not to give us a roadmap to earn forgiveness (justification) through good behavior and religion. It’s to make us look deep into sin’s wound, to diagnose the breadth and depth of our need of healing, and drive us to the only One who can deliver us: the Great Physician, Jesus Christ.
