Context Readings

Justified By Faith In Christ

17 If through our efforts to be made upright through Christ, we have ourselves been proved as much "sinners" as the heathen, does that make Christ encourage sin? By no means. 18 I really convict myself of wrongdoing when I start to rebuild what I tore down. 19 For it is through the Law that I have become dead to the Law, so that I may live for God.
