You are Justified because You Believe the Gospel
22 Even the righteousness of God which is by the faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: 23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; 24 Being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
Being Justified is a Judicial act of God
On what basis does God Justify the ungodly? His Grace! Even though we don’t deserve it. But how does He accomplish it through grace? Redemption! By having His own Son, Jesus Christ pay the price for ALL mankind’s sin.
Justification Has Zero to Do With Us
We are justified without a cause. God wasn’t backed into a corner and finally decided okay, okay, you’re justified after all you deserve it; you were baptized, you joined a Church, you donated all that money, you did your best to keep the commandments and you did think of Me at least one day of the week.
Yeah Right! We are justified freely, without a cause! It’s all God, all Grace or nothing at all.
God justifies those that believe they are sinners without hope and believe that what Jesus Christ did on the cross on our behalf is all that God demanded to pay for our sin.
Do You want to be Justified by God?
In order for you to be justified by God or seen by God; just as you never sinned. You must believe that you are a sinner without hope and believe by faith that God sent His Son Jesus Christ to die for your sins on the cross, was buried and rose from the dead three days later. Just believe it, if you believe it, God says you are Justified in His eyes.
1 Now I make known to you, brethren, the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received, in which also you stand, 2 by which also you are saved, if you hold fast the word which I preached to you, unless you believed in vain.
3 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures,
