Thinking on Romans 5:1 today….”having been JUSTIFIED“… Grammatically it is a one time past event… It is not a process but a one time event. God has DONE this! God DECLARED {Put your Name here ____}… you have been JUSTIFIED,. This is the same word that is used for Righteous. You have been Justified…God has by His act removed the guilt and penalty of sin against you…NOT GUILTY…indeed you are Righteous in standing with God…you have been Justified, are justified and will Eternally be Justified. This is your unchanging position before God… JUSTIFIED because of what God has DONE! 

You are Not Guilty but Righteous and by implication Innocent before Him for all eternity! Eternally Secure because of what God has DONE! And All this not based on our work, but on the perfect work of our Substitute, comes exclusively “….through our LORD Jesus Christ.”-{Read Romans 5:1}. ” He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification”.{to make us right with God} “-{Romans 4:25}…”For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.”-{2 Cor 5:21}. God’s Declaration of “JUSTIFIED” Is upon you and through faith in Christ God sees His righteousness as yours. and you are now perfect, unblemished in His sight due to His Son’s perfect sacrifice on your behalf. What an exchange, God has done for us. Our sin for the righteousness of His Son to our account! No Condemnation but God’s Declaration … you “In Christ” are not guilty, but righteous before Him…and this is your Present and eternal standing! All sin, past, present, future has been taken care of once for all.

You are Not guilty before God, nor will you as a result bear the Penalty of sin, Jesus stood in your place and bore your penalty. God DECLARES you have by His doing, once and for all eternity, been Justified, Righteous…and so you are!

He not only DECLARES you Righteous But TREATS YOU AS RIGHTEOUS! Hallelujah!

“Justified” as used in Romans 5:1 is a legal term. Before the Court of Heaven where sits the JUDGE of all… you have been declared at the moment of your conversion – Not guilty.. but Righteous…Justified…and so there is therefore now NO CONDEMNATION for you because of what God has DONE…and it can not be UNDONE by anything or anyone! All legal charges against you, your sin has been take care of by our LORD Jesus and as a result the Legal declaration concerning you now is… Not Guilty, Righteous, you have been Justified by God who Judged you and your case…

How magnificent is He and the Cross of our LORD Jesus and Resurrection!

Think on this, Put your name here ______ is…”NOT GUILTY….But RIGHTEOUS… HAVING BEEN JUSTIFIED! What God has DONE cannot be UNDONE!

Time to stop, Pause, Think on That.. Think on Him.. Trust in what He has done and says… Thank Him…and Stand in Awe of Him

What God has DONE for you cannot be UNDONE…! 😀
