Fully Justified in Christ

This is the good news in Christ

The Believer’s Daily Remembrancer By Rev. James Smith

Romans 8:33

Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth.

TO be justified is to be acquitted, and pronounced righteous. Every believer in Jesus, however ungodly he may have been, or however vile and unworthy he may feel, is justified by Jehovah. The perfect work of Jesus is imputed to him, free grace is glorified in him, and he is passed from death to life. To him there is no condemnation; no one can lay anything to his charge; he is accepted in the Beloved; Christ lived and died for him, and now he liveth and shall be glorified through and with Jesus. All his trespasses are freely forgiven and eternally forgotten. God has cast all our sins behind His back, and now He pronounces us just. Let us approach God, believing that He has justified us; and let us look forward and rejoice that the Judge of all the earth will declare us righteous. Who shall lay anything to our charge? It is God that justifieth. Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea, rather that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also mak eth intercession for us. My soul, look to Jesus, to His perfect work and prevalent intercession; there see thy salvation and find peace.

They are justified by grace;
They enjoy the Saviour’s peace:
All their sius are washed away;
They shall stand in God’s great day.
With them numbered may we be,
Here, and in eternity.
