"Grace reigns through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 5:21. The grace that saves the sinner is not mere pity and sentiment such as we find in the creature. The grace that saves sinners is established on the principles of an honored law and a satisfied justice, Romans 3:23-26. Grace does not ignore the law nor set aside its requirements. No! It establishes the law, Romans 3:31. Grace establishes the law because it has a Substitute who perfectly fulfilled the law and endured the death penalty for all who believe, in order that God may be both just and justifier.
