Justification by Faith
Bible Verses for this Sunday are taken from The New King James MacArthur Study Bible.
This parable is rich with truth about the doctrine of justification by faith. It illustrates perfectly how a sinner who is devoid of personal righteousness may be declared righteous before God instantaneously through an act of repentant faith.
9 Also He spoke this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others. 10 "Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. 11 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, "God, I thank you that I am not like other men--extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this tax collector. 12 I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I possess," 13 And the tax collector, standing a far off, would not so much as raise his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast saying, "God, be merciful to me a sinner." 14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other; "for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted"
