“Justified by faith…”

I remember hearing an old preacher explain it like this, being justified means that it is just-as-if-I’d never sinned.

So by faith, in the same way that it was accounted to Abraham as righteousness, we are justified before God.

The power of that justification is revealed in the peace that we have through the forgiveness of sins.

There is nothing more powerful than the peace that comes from being forgiven.

Let the whole world know, shout it from the rooftops, that Jesus Christ is king and has come to forgive, and to justify through faith, and to give you peace.

We have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.

There is nothing that people won’t pay to find some kind of peace in their heart.

Though it is looked for in all the wrong places.

In medicine.

In counselling.

In education.

In career.

In finances.

These things have their place and are useful in directing our minds and hearts to where they should be in line with the blessing of God.

But there is nothing like the peace that comes directly from the spirit of God in knowing that you are forgiven.

Regardless of the circumstances we find ourselves in.

All your sins blotted out.

Everything you’ve ever done wrong, forgiven.

That is an incredible love.

That is an awesome God.

Give thanks to Him.

Show your gratitude in praise.

Be blessed and be a blessing,
Graham
