How Can A Man Be Right With God?

Paul Washer asks and answers the most important question any person can ever ask:

At this Easter season, what a reminder that this question -- and where we find the answer to it -- are the two most important things in the world.

God's word in Romans chapter 3 answers this question:

"all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith. This was to show God's righteousness, because in his divine forbearance he had passed over former sins. It was to show his righteousness at the present time, so that he might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.

Then what becomes of our boasting? It is excluded. By what kind of law? By a law of works? No, but by the law of faith.
For we hold that one is justified by faith apart from works of the law.
