Declared righteous.

Series: The Gospel of Luke: Strengthened in Spirit | Week 6: The Missing Ingredient

Read Romans 4:4-8

1. How are we counted righteous in verses 4-5?
2. How do you think working to be declared righteous relates to sin (verse 4)?
3. When we realize we’re declared righteous and forgiven by faith, what does David say we receive when we have faith (verses 6-8)?

When was a time you were filled with joy? Think about what made that a joyful moment. Ask God to remind you of the joy that comes from Him when we confess our disobedience and sins to Him and experience a forgiveness we can’t earn by working for it. Thank Him that faith is all He asks of us, and experience joy today.
