In this session we are looking at one of the most fundamental doctrines of the Christian faith – that we are right with God (or “justified”) by faith alone. Not through the good works that we do or by earning in any way.
This is really taking the things we’ve looked at over the past few weeks (the Apostle’s Creed) and asking, “Why is it important to believe all of this? And how do we benefit from it?”
There are three questions in this Lord’s Day:
- Q59 “But what does it help you now that you believe all this?”
- Q60 “How are you righteous before God?”
- Q61 “Why do you say that you are righteous only by faith?”
“Faith alone” is one of the most important topics that Christians can think about – it makes a huge difference to the Christian life. It’s hard to overstate how important it is.
