The Sinner’s Only Plea (Luke 18:9-17)

The Lord Jesus Christ is returning one day in glory to judge the world, destroy his enemies, and establish his kingdom in righteousness. But when the Son of Man comes, who will be found righteous so as to dwell in his kingdom (Luke 18:8)? This is the dilemma of fall humanity. Though many put their confidence in themselves that they are righteous, Scripture tells us that “none is righteous, no, not one…for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Rom. 3:10, 23). So, how can a sinner be made righteous before God? In this sermon, Pastor Matt proclaims the good news that those who confess their sin, acknowledge their need, and believe in Him who justifies the ungodly, their faith is counted to them as righteousness.
