Big Idea – What we learned about today
The law of God has been kept perfectly only by Jesus. No other human has, is, or will
be able to keep God’s law.
Bible Lesson – Romans 3:9-20 (ESV)
9 What then? Are we Jews any better off? No, not at all. For we have already charged that all, both Jews and Greeks, are under sin, 10 as it is written:
“None is righteous, no, not one;
11 no one understands;
no one seeks for God.
12 All have turned aside; together they have become worthless;
no one does good,
not even one.”
13 “Their throat is an open grave;
they use their tongues to deceive.”
“The venom of asps is under their lips.”
14 “Their mouth is full of curses and bitterness.”
15 “Their feet are swift to shed blood;
16 in their paths are ruin and misery,
17 and the way of peace they have not known.”
18 “There is no fear of God before their eyes.”
19 Now we know that whatever the law says it speaks to those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be stopped, and the whole world may be held accountable to God. 20 For by works of the law no human being will be justified in his sight, since through the law comes knowledge of sin.

Note from the teacher
Today we learned about one important purpose of God’s law, and that is to teach us about sin. Each of us has fallen short of perfectly obeying God’s law, thus we are all sinners unable to save ourselves. But Jesus has perfectly obeyed God’s law and offers redemption to each of us by grace through faith. We are working on memorizing the books of the Bible this year, as well as various scriptures. This handout is designed to encourage family worship and as a study tool building on what your student is learning in Sunday school.
