So glad to have you here for more Daily Bread. Let me remind you what
Paul was writing about when we left off. He was explaining that to be
Jewish is not about being born with Jewish blood, it's about being
Jewish in your heart and your spirit.
Paul goes on with a little question and answer style of teaching, so
put on your thinking caps while we study it together.
Q ... What advantage is there then, or what
profit is there to be born Jewish?
A ... Much, in every way. Mostly because the messages of God were
written to them.
Q ... But if our unrighteousness commend (makes right or worthy) the
righteousness of God, what shall we say? Is God unrighteous who takes
vengeance? (I speak in human terms.)
A ... Certainly not, because then how shall God judge the world?
Q ... Because if the truth (faith in the reality) of God has become
more clear through my lie for His glory, why am I still judged as a
sinner? And not instead (as we've been slanderously spoken of and as
some claim that we say), Let us do evil, so that good may come of it?
Whose condemnation is deserved. What then? Are we (the Gentiles) better
than they (the Jewish)?
A ... No, in no way, because we have before found out
the TRUTH, both Jewish and Gentiles, that they are all under sin, as it
is written ...

2 The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of
men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God.
3 They are all gone aside, they are all together become
filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part is
very wickedness; their throat is an open sepulchre; they flatter with
His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and fraud: under his tongue
is mischief and vanity.
7 Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed
innocent blood: their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and
destruction are in their paths.
8 The way of peace they know not; and there is no judgment
in their goings: they have made them crooked paths: whosoever goeth
therein shall not know peace.
For their feet run to evil, and make haste to shed blood.
The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, that there is
no fear of God before his eyes.

scripture, Paul just showed us that we're all subject to sin, whether we're
Jewish or Gentile, it matters not. We are all under sin. We all sin.
We're not all under the law (the Old Testament). In fact, nobody is
under the law unless they choose to be. And when a person chooses to
be under the law, they are obligated to obey it. Paul explains:
19 Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it
saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped,
and all the world may become guilty before God.
20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh
be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.
To say this simply, if there are no rules to break, everything is within
the law. Once rules are introduced, then you know there is right and wrong
(sin). If you didn't know what wrong was, you couldn't have any sin.

He might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.
Q ... Where is the bragging then?
A ... It is eliminated.
Q ... By what law? Of works?
A ... No, but by the law of Faith. Therefore we conclude that a man
is justified by faith, without the deeds of the law.
Q ... Is he the God of the Jewish only? Is He not also of the
A ... Yes, of the Gentiles also. He is one God, who will justify the
Jewish by faith and the Gentiles through faith.

Works are not only things that you do, they can be your attitude or a
train of thought, or anything that comes from you, humanly speaking.
Here, Paul is pointing out that nothing that is "of you" can get you
Being Jewish, although it is not something that a person can control,
is still a human trait that Jewish people possess, therefore, it is
not a means by which you can obtain eternal life.
Faith is the key. It doesn't matter if you do a dozen good deeds per
day, if you give 20 percent of your income to the poor, or if your
family is in the direct bloodline of the tribe of Ephraim, without
faith, your "works" are useless.
Following the law is a "work." It does not admit you into Heaven.
That's not to say that you shouldn't follow the law. It means that if
you have Faith, you will want to follow the law, effortlessly.
