Today on A Study In The Word, Evangelist Jimmy Swaggart and panel discuss the meaning of transgression, reading Romans 4:15. Transgression literally means, overstepping a line, or overstepping a boundary; doing something you are not suppose to do. Under the law, it was clearly defined that this was a transgression. Man could not stop from breaking the transgression with the law. The law shows our inability to keep it, and it will not justify us, but bring about God’s wrath. The more law you involve yourself in, the more condemnation grips you. Jesus Christ satisfied the law on Calvary’s Cross thereby taking away all transgression. Our focus must be on faith in Christ and His finished work on the Cross, and then we will understand that we are justified by faith and not law keeping.
