The Second Sunday after Christmas


    The Second Sunday after Christmas | January 5th

    Printed Sermon
    Whole Service

    Romans 3:19-22

    Now we know that whatever the law says is addressed to those who are under the law, so that every mouth will be silenced and the whole world will be subject to God’s judgment. 20 For this reason, no one will be declared righteous in his sight by works of the law, for through the law we become aware of sin. 21 But now, completely apart from the law, a righteousness from God has been made known. The Law and the Prophets testify to it. 22 This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all and over all who believe.

    I. God’s Law shocks us into silence

    II. Christ’s Gospel overwhelms us into praise
