We ARE Justified by Faith

We ARE Justified by Faith

A placeholder entry for commentary on the sermon offered May 26, 2013 at Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church (ELCA) in Sylva, NC.

Romans 5:1-5

The general idea is that being justified by our faith gives us freedom to act, to follow through and be confident of our place as a loved child of God. I’m getting a little too much out of close reading word choices for someone that doesn’t know Greek, I think, but in the context of this section of Romans, it makes sense–Paul spends time explaining justification by faith and then turns to the implications of this, and I think we sometimes get trapped in the pressure that follows justification by faith, turning what should be a relief into worry.
