Day by Day with Martin Luther

Read: Genesis 26:17-27:46 Matthew 9:1-17 Proverbs 3:9-10

“Justified through Faith”

“For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.” [Romans 10:4]

Outside of Christ there is no blessing or justification, not only because of the Law, but also because there is no other faith. God wants to keep His promise made to Abraham, to whom the promised blessing for all the world in his Seed and in no one else’s seed (Genesis 22:18). Therefore, He will not sanction a new or different faith for anyone, or let His promise be lie or recall it. Therefore, faith in Christ justifies, as Paul says, “Christ is the end of the Law; whoever believes in Him is righteous” (Romans 10:4). What does this mean? Nothing else than that all who believe in Christ are justified through faith, and receive His Spirit and grace. With that there is an end of the Law, so that he is never under the Law. Live in Christ!
