Justification by Faith

Bible Verses for this Sunday are taken from The New King James MacArthur Study Bible.

 
Luke: 18:9-14
 
This parable is rich with truth about the doctrine of justification by faith.  It illustrates perfectly how a sinner who is devoid of personal righteousness may be declared righteous before God instantaneously through an act of repentant faith.
 
9 Also He spoke this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others.   10 "Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector.  11 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, "God, I thank you that I am not like other men--extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this tax collector.  12 I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I possess,"  13 And the tax collector, standing a far off, would not so much as raise his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast saying, "God, be merciful to me a sinner."  14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other; "for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted"
