"Liberty and Justification for All!"
Liberty and Justification for All!" Romans 5:1-2. Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God.
Many of us look for justice when someone has been done wrong. Perhaps, you've been wronged and felt like justice was not given to you. We were all excited to see justice for #George Floyd in the guilty verdict of the man who so brutally murdered him. Did that justice bring #peace to the world. That remains to be seen. But this I know for sure; when we understand that our sins have been justified by the death of Christ, the justice we receive from that death does bring peace and puts us in right standing with God. All's forgiven and forgotten.
No jury or judge could sentence Christ to death on the cross. He took that one on His own, so that we can have the kind of peace that can only come through the shedding of His blood and have a good relationship with God.
Sure, there will be hard times. Sure the justice that we seek here on earth may not come the way we like. But as Christians and children of God, our lives are filled with trouble, the Bible says that. But yet we are growing in Christ (becoming more like him) At one and the same we have the status of kings and the duties of slaves. We feel both the presence of Christ and the pressure of sin. We enjoy the peace that comes from being made right with God, but we still face daily problems that often help us grow. These facts of life does not take away the justification we received when Christ died for us.
Todays strength, remember peace and justice for all hung on the cross for us all. It is through our faith that peace and justice manifests itself in our lives. Do not be discouraged as you face temptations and problems, instead learn to depend on the power available to us from Christ and lean on the justice that was given to us through His death and the guidance of The Holy Spirit.
Share this word with someone who may not understand, Christ death brought justice for everyone who believes by faith. This has been Lisa with Lisa 6:3.
