Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ ~ Romans 5:1
Have you ever been in a position where were wrongly accused and then someone came along and cleared your name? Was it in grade school…. when the class bully tattled on you to the teacher and moments before you were whisked off to the principle’s office your best friend stood up and cleared your name? 🙂 I’m sure you can think of a time!
The feeling of being accused is the worst!! How do I defend myself? Can I defend myself? Before man… this is a task? Before God…? How do we even begin?
To justify is to free from blame, to acquit (whitewash!) from guilt [Isaiah 1:18]. Jesus, by HIS BLOOD has already done the work of justification for us.
Celebrate being liberated from all the accusations of the enemy because he no longer has a hold on you and now you can come freely before God!
Feels good to be free!
