Theology Network is changing

UCCF continues to be committed to equipping today's Theology students to live and speak for Jesus in their chosen field of study.
Theology Network is now a part of UCCF's Leadership Network, so you can now find our resources at www.uccfleadershipnetwork.org/theology. As a result, this site will be taken down at the beginning of 2019.

Session 7 Justification

Listen  Table Talk 004: Justification - John Piper

Scripture  Romans 4; 5:19; Philippians 3:7-8; 2 Corinthians 5:21


  1. What difference does it make to our lives and our walk with God when we get clarity and precision on key doctrines like Justification?
  2. What difference would it make, day to day in our lives, if we were convinced our righteousness is in heaven? Why?
  3. What are the two ways Christ is a substitute for us?  How does denying or forgetting that Christ is our substitute obedience affect day to day life?
  4. How do 2 Corinthians 5:21, Philippians 2:8 and 3:6 teach the imputation of Christ's righteousness to us?
  5. How does John Piper explain that collapsing faith and works into one "undermine the very means by which radical obedience of love is sustained"?
  6. What does Philippians 3:12 say is the means or motivation for 'pressing on' in obedience to Christ?
