When the enemy of our soul seeks to push us into condemnation, we must remember that we have a lawyer that speaks on our behalf. Not only does he speaks on our behalf but He also took to Himself the charge or the sins of us all. We are all guilty of sin and deserve our punishment. Galatians 3: 22 “But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe” God knows that we would not be able to experience the glorious beauty of heaven because our sins have already separated us from Him. He chose to do something very powerful that is to justify us. This justification comes through the shed blood of His son Jesus Christ when He took to himself the sins of us all. Hebrews 9: 22 “And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission”
What is remission? Remission is the cancelling of something owed or a debt being cancelled. Colossians 2: 13-14 “And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; 14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross” The law was there as an ordinance exposing our sins and the punishment that is due to us. Jesus in His precious, perfect love for us, took on himself the sin of us all so we can be justified. Once we acknowledge Jesus Christ as our Lord and savior our justification then comes through faith believing in Christ finish work. As the scripture above states He quickens us together with Himself, there is an immediate transformation once we accept Him and our sins are forgiven.
THE BENEFITS OF JUSTIFICATION: The benefit of this justification is that we are forgiven of all our sins once we accept Christ as our personal Lord and savior. Romans 8: 1 “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit”. We can now live in an established relationship with Jesus Christ and being led by the Holy Spirit. Jesus can put to silence the accusation of the devil who is the accuser of the brethren. We can come boldly the the Father through Jesus Christ as a child looking up to a father and trusting in His goodness towards us. Jesus is always talking to the Father on our behalf. Gifts of the Spirit are given to us. We become royal priesthood. We will become prince and princess seated in high places with Christ Jesus far above all principalities and power. We will have favor with God and man. Christ grace upon us will enable us to receive the Spirit of life Romans 8: 2 “For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. Christ will rewrite the story of our lives as we become new creatures and we will be able to walk in the destiny He had mapped out for us. This justification give us peace Romans 5: 1 “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ”
We have received so many benefits from the justification given to us by Jesus Christ. Let us try our best to do as much we possible can to please Him. Let us continue to hold fast in faith in respect to this justification so we can have power to reject the condemnation of the enemy. Let us give thanks always for all that Christ had for us. Let us thank him for the truth in His word.
