Rags to Riches

Romans 1:17  (ID: 1792)

Is God’s righteousness an attribute we can love and worship? In this message, Alistair Begg explains that God’s holiness reveals the gravity of our sinful condition and our need for a Savior. Apart from Christ, we would have every reason to despair. The Gospel, however, invites us to place our confidence in Jesus’ perfect righteousness and not our own merit. In light of this message of hope, we can praise God’s character and marvel at the magnitude of His grace.


17For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith,5 as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith.”6
