Justification by Faith…

12 Jan


Romans 5:1-2, “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.”

The Greek word for Justification according to the New Testament of The Holy Bible, is “dikaioo.” This word means “to acquit,” or “to vindicate,” according to the Word of God. The Faith that Christians place in the Lord Jesus as and atonement for the “sin nature,” that was inherited by all Mankind from Adam and Eve. This makes all who accept Christ right in the eyes of the one true God. This is made possible only through the Divine Nature of Jesus, being both God and Man who knew no sin, 2 Corinthians 5:21, but took the burden of sin, for all of Us to the Cross to be sacrificied on Our behalfs.

The New Testament states that by Faith we are placed inside His death Spiritually in Romans 6:3-5 stating, “Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection.”

The Bible says being Baptized into Christ, (not by water, but Faith in Him) totally defeats the sin nature, and washes us and makes all Believers pure in the eyes of God. Who looks upon all with Faith in Jesus as His true Sons and Daughters in Christ. The price that had to be paid to defeat sin and death, could not be attained through works of Religion or by being a truly good person. It is alot deeper that, seeing as how every man and woman are born into sin already automatically puts all of mankind in the direct opposition of God. It took a perfect sacrifice, a truly sinless individual to unlock the shackles and free Us from eternal separation from God. Jesus was that Person!

Who came into this world and died so that We all could be free. Our Faith places Us in the Lord’s death, so that we could do away with the sinful desires of Our hearts, and be with Him. How do we know that we will be with Him? The same way that we died with Him, God has also resurrected all Christian Believers as such. Shalom…
