Whom God Justifies 10-07-19

Good day everyone. Oh give thanks unto the Lord for He is good yes He is good and worthy of all our praise. I have been concentrating on the word “justification” this morning. The definition of the word is this: a justifying or being justified; a fact that justifies or vindicates; Christian Theology; the state or condition, necessary for salvation, of being blameless or absolved of the guilt of sin.

Let’s pray and dive into the word.

Today’s Prayer

Dear Heavenly Father, we pray for blessings, and You send us opportunities! We ask for help, and You send a friend who “just happened to drop by!” In so many ways, Lord, You are there for us, sometimes before we realize that we are in over our head and need Your guidance! In big or little things, You are there. Help us see these encounters as evidence of Your presence, Your love, and Your concern, and help us remember always to give You thanks. More and more we realize that there is no such thing as luck or coincidence for a believing Christian, it’s always Your shepherding presence. Our lives are so much richer, happier, and more peaceful, since we have recognized Jesus as our daily companion and friend! We want to share the “good news,” so that others may know Him too. Help us all to continue to grow in our faith, and to learn to praise You in all things. It’s in Jesus’ name we pray and give thanks, Amen.

Let’s eat.

Whom God Justifies

“The Ungodly”; the Character; “That Worked Not

Romans 4:5

Abraham was, humanly speaking, the founder of our Jewish nation. What did he discover about being made right with God? If his good deeds had made him acceptable to God, he would have had something to boast about. But that was not God’s way. For the Scriptures tell us, “Abraham believed God, and God counted him as righteous because of his faith.” When people work, their wages are not a gift, but something they have earned. But people are counted as righteous, not because of their work, but because of their faith in God who forgives sinners.

The Condition, “But Believe”

Romans 3:21-26

But now God has shown us a way to be made right with him without keeping the requirements of the law, as was promised in the writings of Moses and the prophets long ago. We are made right with God by placing our faith in Jesus Christ. And this is true for everyone who believes, no matter who we are. For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Yet God, with undeserved kindness, declares that we are righteous. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins. For God presented Jesus as the sacrifice for sin. People are made right with God when they believe that Jesus sacrificed his life, shedding his blood. This sacrifice shows that God was being fair when he held back and did not punish those who sinned in times past, for he was looking ahead and including them in what he would do in this present time. God did this to demonstrate his righteousness, for he himself is fair and just, and he declares sinners to be right in his sight when they believe in Jesus.

Quote of the Day

To be forged upon the anvil of God’s purpose, to be at once His hammer, His tongs, and His molten iron; to hear words that rend the heart, see visions that pierce the chest; to be emptied like an urn, again and again and again until one desires only rest, only an end to the refilling — and to know one cannot live without the refilling. To be given words that one dare not speak, and to feel those words churning and boiling in the belly until one must speak them aloud, or die. To be despised, soon or late, by everyone except Adonai — and to desire it so, while hating it. This is to be a prophet.
