Being Justified By Faith...

Beloved of God, greetings to you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.  I just want to briefly brush on this amazing truth about us the new creation. It is not just amazing, it is also unbelievable for the natural man. The Bible said that we have been justified.  Justification means that we are NOT GUILTY.  For all the sins we committed, God said we are not Guilty! No Charge! Yep, that's right.
Romans 5: 1 says, "Therefore being Justified by faith, we have peace with God, through our Lord Jesus Christ."


It would have made sense if God said, I forgive you and stops there. However, He went further to call us justified.  It doesn't make God a liar, it doesn't mean that God now tolerates sins. God is Holy, He is Holy.  We are justified because of what Jesus did.  Jesus paid the price for all our sins and He gave us a new life which cannot sin and cannot be tainted by sin. 
We have been made the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. ( 2Corinthians 5:21). We have the nature of God in us, the man that sinned is no longer alive, the sinner died with Christ and now has a new life. It doesn't matter that your mind remembers your sins, God does not remember. Hebrews 8:12 says, "For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness and their sins and iniquities will I remember no more."
The Bible said in Galatians 2:20, "I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith of the Son of God who loved me and gave Himself for me." (NIV)  You see, when Jesus died, we died with Him and when He was raised, God raised us up together with Him..Romans 6:4, 2 Timothy 2:11.

Remember, Jesus was chastised for our peace Isaiah 55:3.  For all the sins we committed, all the sins we will ever commit, Jesus paid for them all. The Bible said that the soul that sins shall die..Ezekiel 18:20...however, according to Hebrews 2:9, Jesus tasted death for every man. So the legal demands of our sins were paid in full by Jesus when He gave His life for us. Colossians 1:14 says that it is in Christ we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.
It would have been enough if God said, our sins are forgiven and ends it there, but He went further to say we are not guilty because the person who committed the sin died with Christ..it is a gift from God. Romans 3: 23-24 says, "For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God; and all are justified freely by His grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus."  People are quick to quote the first part that says..'all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God...' but they don't see the second part that says we have been justified freely.  That's why the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ is called the good news. If you receive Jesus as the Lord of your life, you will NOT go to Hell, but the devil does not want people to know this truth; hence, the attack on the church. God loves us y'all. He paid for our sins, for God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ." 2Corinthians 5:21. 
Jesus died for you and me..receive Him today and escape hell..cos if you don't and you die, too late...you will be meeting the devil in hell period. 
If you want to receive Jesus as your Lord just say this short prayer,  "Dear Heavenly Father, I believe that Jesus is Your Son, who came and died for me, I believe that you raised Him from the dead..I confess Jesus Christ as the Lord and I ask Him to come into my life and be the Lord of my life for ever."   If you made this confession, Welcome to God's Kingdom. God bless you, you are saved according to Romans chapter 10 verse 8-10.   Just make sure you get yourself into a Bible believing church so you can learn more about Jesus and His ways, you need to fellowship with other believers and have your mindset renewed with the Word.

God bless you and I love all my readers but Jesus loves you more
