Scripture Verse of The Week ‘Romans 5 Verse 1’

justified

Romans 5 verse 1: “Therefore since we have been declared righteous by faith, we have peace wit God through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

One of the greatest benefits of truth is assurance. We can know in our hearts that our standing with God does not depend on us but on Jesus Christ and what he has accomplished for us.

What a wonderful and blessed relief this is. We never have to second guess ourselves and wonder if we have been good enough to tip the scales of judgement in our favor at the end of the day.

Galatians 3 verse 11:

“Now it is clear that no one is justified before God by the law, because the righteous will live by faith”.

We were once separated by God by sin, now by faith and acceptance of all Christ Jesus did on the cross for any ‘Whosoever’. A relationship of alienation has been changed to a wonderful relationship of friendship and peace, which provides us with wonderful assurance and a peace of mind.

The extraordinary Gift of Grace, that comes with repentance {acknowledging that we have fallen short of God’s purposes for our life} means that we have to prove nothing to God, that we are good enough in ourselves.

God accepts you and any ‘Whosoever’ on the bases of a relationship, with His Son Christ Jesus.

God Bless.

OFJ.
