DAY 31 THURSDAY: MAY 2018

A CHRISTIAN IS JUSTIFIED BY FAITH!

Therefore, having being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 5:1).

The word, “Justify” simply means having a right standing with God; hence, to be totally set free by God without any form of excuse whatsoever. The Bible says in the opening text that therefore, having being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. When a Christian is justified by faith, it simply means that by faith he has a right standing with God and at the same time totally set free without any form of excuse whatsoever.

A Christian is justified by faith not necessarily because of his good works based on the Law of Moses but because of faith in Christ Jesus. No wonder the Bible says in Galatians 2:16, “Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Christ Jesus, that we might be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the law; for by the works of the law no flesh shall be justified.”

This is the genuine reason why salvation is by grace alone and not by the works of the flesh or by the Law of Moses. Of course, grace is obtained by faith in Christ Jesus. That is why the Bible says in Ephesians 2:8, “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God.” In fact, because faith in Christ Jesus is by grace; therefore, salvation becomes a gift and not by merit or by self-effort.

Daily Tip: Every Christian is justified by faith which is obtained by grace in Christ Jesus and a gift from God. Shalom!

Golden Text: And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God (1 Corinthians 6:11).
