Part 5: All Together Now
Series: The Epistle To The Romans
Stuart Briscoe
Romans 3:9-20

The human race is severely fragmented. No one denies it although many ignore it while some look for common ground on which some semblance of unity might be built. Paul states common ground that is largely overlooked but, if properly appreciated, could work wonders.

I. All Under Sin.

A. The conclusion. v. 9
'Religious' sinners are no better than 'irreligious' sinners.

B. The charge. vv. 10-18
1. Sin-a factor that must not be ignored.
a. Sins are fruits.

b. Sin is root.

2. Sin-a force that cannot be dismissed.
a. All under sin's control.

b. All under sin's condemnation.

3. Sin-a fault that will not go away.
a. A fault running through human character.
i. Spiritual declension-'none righteous.'


Part 6: The Genius of God
Series: The Epistle To The Romans
Stuart Briscoe
Romans 3:21-31

We have now reached one of the pivotal points of the epistle introduced by the words: "But now…" After the powerful "charge" that "all are under sin" and merit divine judgment, Paul begins to outline God's answer to the human predicament.

I. The Divine Dilemma.

A. The human condition. v. 23
1. All have sinned-archer's arrow.

2. All have come short-lagging runner.

3. Every mouth is silenced. 3:19

B. The Divine character.
1. He is righteous-"Righteousness," "Justice," "Just": all related. v. 21

2. He is gracious. v. 24

C. The crucial issue.
How can God "be just and the one who justifies"? v. 25, e.g. John 8
