Certainty of God’s grace
“Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:”
The Passion version renders it as : Our faith in Jesus transfers God’s righteousness to us and He now declares us flawless in His eyes. This means we can now enjoy true and lasting peace with God, all because of what our Lord Jesus, the Anointed One, has done for us.
We are flawless in God’s eyes, whether man or the enemy deems you not, it’s not a statement worthy of doubt or verification but rather a testimony of God about you because it is He that makes You justified !
¹¹She answered, No one, Lord! And Jesus said, I do not condemn you either. Go on your way and from now on sin no more.
In a simplified way stated; Faith in Jesus makes what seems to be unworthy worthy, a perfection of a seemingly imperfect person.
As much as the world will question your status, focus on what Jesus says: better now, remember that you are redeemed, justified and saved. He is the source of All grace, and reigns on the throne of Grace and the giver of grace.
1 Corithians 6:11
And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
God loathes sin, not the sinner, so He dealt with the sin onece and for all to reconcile man to Himself and thus through the perfection of Christ(we only must live in it), we receive redemption and justification, where the enemy sought to condemn us, God has justified. When Joshua the high priest is accused, God stands in and rebukes Satan, deeming that the priest symbolic of Israel as well had been plucked out fire and the filthy garments taken away.
¹THEN [the guiding angel] showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the Angel of the Lord, and Satan standing at Joshua’s right hand to be his adversary and to accuse him.²And the Lord said unto Satan, The Lord rebuke thee, O Satan; even the Lord that hath chosen Jerusalem rebuke thee: is not this a brand plucked out of the fire?
Joshua was already a priest when this happened, child of God You re the royal priesthood , nevertheless the enemy will try to condemn and make you feel that you are not worthy it, but remember where God has taken you from, He deems you as His own Righteousness in Christ Jesus ( 1 Corinthians 5:21).
The Lord has clothed You with His righteousness, redeemed and plucked you out of fire.
As a bridegroom decks himself with a garland, and as a bride adorns herself with jewels, I will rejoice greatly in the Lord, my soul will abound in my God, for He has wrapped me with a robe of righteousness and garment of salvation .
I will rejoice greatly in the Lord, My soul will exult in my God; For He has clothed me with garments of salvation, He has wrapped me with a robe of righteousness, As a bridegroom decks himself with a garland, And as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
1 Peter 2:9
But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:
