Powerful and Positive Negatives — The Lord Does NOT Count Our Sins Against Us.

 

Date : 2019-01-18
Speaker : Professor John Reim
Romans 4:5-8
(RSV) “And to one who does not work but trusts him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is reckoned as righteousness. 6 So also David pronounces a blessing upon the man to whom God reckons righteousness apart from works:

7 “Blessed are those whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered;
8 blessed is the man against whom the Lord will not reckon his sin.”

Hymn: TLH 168, st. 1-3: The Royal Banners Forward Go

Hymnary.org Organ Audio

1. The royal banners forward go; 
The cross shines forth in mystic glow 
Where He in flesh, our flesh who made, 
our sentence bore, our ransom paid; 

2. Where deep for us the spear was dyed, 
Life’s torrent rushing from His side. 
To wash us in that precious flood 
Where mingled water flowed and blood. 

3. Fulfilled is all that David told 
In true prophetic song of old; 
Amidst the nations, God, saith he, 
Hath reigned and triumphed from the tree.
