You Are Justified
Author: Jerry Savelle
“Being justified freely without any cost, by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus” (Romans 3:24).
One of the simplest definition’s of justified is “just as if I’d never sinned.”
You have been made “just as if you had never sinned!”
“Blessed is the man whose sin the Lord will never count against him” (Romans 4:8, NIV).
Never again will your sins be counted against you. That’s good news!
This justification has been given to you freely because of what Jesus did for you on the Cross.
Redemption simply means “buying back.” Just like a kidnapped man is bought back from his captor with ransom money, so Jesus bought you back from the hands of the devil with His shed blood.
God is the Justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus (see Romans 3:26).
This justification and redemption does not depend on your performance, it depends on your faith in Jesus and the fact that you are “in Him.”
Confession: Thank You, Father, for treating me “just as if I had never sinned.” I cast down all thoughts of condemnation and meditate on the free gift of righteousness that is mine because I am in Christ Jesus.
