The Just Shall ‘LIVE by Faith Pt 2

Right Standing (Justified)

Rom 8:29,30,33.  For God knew his people in advance, and he chose them to become like his Son. And having chosen them, he gave them right standing (Justified) with himself. And having given them right standing (Justified), he gave them his glory. Who dares accuse us whom God has chosen for his own? No one—for God himself has given us right standing (Justified) with himself.

When we became born again God imputed (gave) His righteousness to us. He nailed our old sinful nature to the cross and took it away. In it’s place He gave us a new righteous nature which is His righteousness; And this righteousness means we can stand before God in justification, that is, just as if we have never sinned.

This righteousness is a free gift. Rom 5:17 How much more will those who receive God’s gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ. It can never be taken away from us. Rom 11:29 For God’s gifts can never be withdrawn; And the wonderful thing about this gift is that whenever we sin, because Christ’s blood constantly flows to cleanse us from all sin, it means we always have right standing with God.

Having right standing gives us total acceptance with God and brings deliverance from fear, shame, rejection, guilt and condemnation etc; but as a Christian, how do I come into the experience of having right standing with God; I come into it by revelation.

Rom 1:17 For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.”

Paul is here saying that there is a revelation of righteousness (right standing) that has been hidden from our eyes but is now revealed to us in the Gospel; And we are to receive this revelation by faith. In our next blog we will look at how to access this revelation by faith.

Meditation point: Rom 1:17 For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith,  just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.”
