So Far, This Is What I Know…

So far, this is what I know:

  • Belief in Jesus = belief in God (Matthew 10:32-33; Mark 8:38; Luke 9:26; John 5:23, 24, 38-47; 6:29; 8:19, 42, 49, 52; 10:25, 38; 14:7 [actually, just about all of John 14!]; 15:23; 16:3, 27)
  • Belief in God = righteousness = justification (Romans 3:21-26; Romans 4:3, 5, 11, 20-22; 9:30; 10:4, 10; Galatians 3:6; Philippians 3:9; Hebrews 11:4, 7; James 2:23)
  • Righteousness = justification = new birth (John 5:24; 1 John 2:29, 2 Corinthians 5:17; Galatians 6:15; Colossians 3:10, 1 Peter 1:23, 1 John 3:9)
  • New Birth = ending of the law (John 5:24; Romans 6:14; 10:4)
  • Ending of the law = no condemnation (John 3:18; 5:24; Romans 4:15; 5:13; 8:1)
  • No condemnation = freedom to show love by obedience to the law in sanctification. (John 13:34; 15:12; 15:17; Romans 8:2; 12:10; 13:8, 10; 14:13; Galatians 5:1, 13, 22-26; 6:2; Ephesians 4:1-2, 28-32; Colossians 3:10-17; Titus 3:7-8; Hebrews 10:22-24; James 1:22-25; 1 Peter 1:22; 2:13-16; 1 John 3:11, 14, 22; 4:7; 2 John 5)

There may be a few more steps in there (and these references are by no means exhaustive), but that’s pretty much the gist of it.
