TOPIC: Being Justified- Being made righteous
*Justified by faith
*Peace with God
*Through the grace and shed blood of our Lord Jesus Christ!
Quote: There is no justification without sanctification, no forgiveness without renewal of life, no real faith from which the fruits of new obedience do not grow.
An explanation of cause is not a justification by reason.
Romans 3: 24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;
26 To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.
27 Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.
28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.
Romans 5:Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: 5:9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.
1 Timothy 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.
I thank God for justifying my soul in the Fall of 1958 when I asked Jesus to save my soul and set me free from the bondage of my sin! AMAZING GRACE!
