Romans 3:21- 31. What do some of these words mean?

1. “R” stands for “Righteousness.”
2. “P” stands for “Propitiation”.
3. “F” stands for “faith”.
4. “B” stands for “Boasting”.
• We human beings need “a righteousness” apart from the law. A righteousness that doesn’t depend on our flawed efforts. That is what is so wonderful about the salvation Paul is talking about it. It is a righteousness granted to us, rather than a righteousness earned by us. This is what makes the Christian religion so unique. Righteousness is granted to us as a gift. Paul is saying to us that there is no way we can help ourselves, pull ourselves up by our bootstraps, instead we have to receive it, accept it and be grateful for it.
