The Gospel (Good News)
Romans 3:19-26

Seven points made by Paul on how to present the Gospel.

1st v.20 "No one is declared righteous by observing the law"
2nd v.21 "But there is a righteousness apart from the law"
3rd v.22 "This righteousness is received from GOD, through faith in JESUS CHRIST"
4th v.23 "This righteousness is available to everyone on the same basis"
5th v.24 "All who put their faith (trust, belief) in JESUS CHRIST"
6th v.24 "This JUSTIFICATION is through the
REDEMPTION that came by JESUS CHRIST"
7th v.25 "GOD presented JESUS as a 'SACRIFICE of ATONEMENT' through FAITH in His Blood"

Acts 16:31    John 3:16
