Justified Just-as-if-I’d never sinned
Stop Justifying Yourself
Galatians 2:16 …we know that a person is not justified by works of the law but through faith in Jesus Christ.
Romans 3:28 For we maintain that a person is justified by faith apart from the works of the law.
Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no-one may boast.
Declared ‘Not Guilty!’
Romans 8:1-2 Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus…
Acts 13:38-39 …I want you to know that through Jesus the forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you. Through him everyone who believes is set free from every sin, a justification you were not able to obtain under the law…
Romans 5:1 Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ…
The Divine Exchange
2 Corinthians 5:21 God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
Romans 4:2-5 If, in fact, Abraham was justified by works, he had something to boast about—but not before God. What does Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.”
Titus 3:6-7 He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit…so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life.
