JUSTIFIED BY FAITH

” Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith apart from the deeds of the law.”  Romans 3:28 (NKJV)
 
It’s interesting how one may think he or she is made righteous by his/her own deeds.
Get this, from Genesis to Revelation, no single person was declared righteous by the deeds of the law (the law here is the law of Moses).
The law of Moses, couldn’t make any one righteous. The purpose of the law is to reveal or unmask sin.
 
” For by the merit of observing the law no one earns the status of being declared righteous before God, for it is the law that fully exposes and unmasks the reality of sin.” Romans 3:21 (TPT).
 
The law reveals your imperfection and inability to be righteous.
You are made righteous or you are justified only through Jesus. It is your believe in Jesus, that made you righteous.
You may try your best to follow the law of Moses, however the law is designed to bring you to the end of yourself by exposing your weaknesses.
The law points you to the need of a saviour.
Both the law and the prophets bear witness of this reality, that you are justified or made righteous without the law of Moses.
 
” But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being testified by the law and the prophets” Romans 3:21 (Webster’s Bible Translation).
 
So then you must know that your justification is by faith in Jesus only. It is good to live right, but you are not justified by your good deeds.
However, because you are made righteous you live right.
Look at how Paul the apostle concluded his teaching concerning Jesus, in the synagogue at Antioch in Pisidia;
 
“Therefore let it be known to you, brethren, that through this Man is preached to you the forgiveness of sins; and by Him everyone who believes is justified from all things from which you could not be justified by the law of Moses. Acts 13:38-39 (NKJV)
 
Now Paul said this when he was to give an exhortation in Antioch by the Jewish leaders. He said these things after they had read the law and the prophets.
 
” And after the reading of the Law and the Prophets, the rulers of the synagogue sent to them, saying, “Men and brethren, if you have any word of exhortation for the people, say on.”
Then Paul stood up, and motioning with his hand said, “Men of Israel, and you who fear God, listen:” Acts 13:15-16 (NKJV).
 
Now what I want you to take note of is that, those Jews read the law and the prophets and thought they are made righteous by the deeds of the law. They didn’t understand the purpose of the law. They read the law and the prophets, yet they couldn’t see the testimony of those scriptures they read.
The Jews read the law and the prophets and couldn’t see the true testimony of the scriptures. They never saw that the scriptures (the law and the prophets) pointed to Jesus.
 
” You pore over the Scriptures because you presume that by them you possess eternal life. These are the very words that testify about Me” John 5:39 (BSB)
 
AND THIS IS THE TESTIMONY OF JESUS, YOU ARE JUSTIFIED BY FAITH IN HIM!
You cannot pay for the penalty of sin by your good deeds or works of the law.
When you attempt to be justified by your works, it shall be reckon as debts!
(Romans 4:4).
Beloved, you are justified only through faith in Jesus and not by the works or the deeds of the law of Moses.
 
” For we conclude that a person is put right with God only through faith, and not by doing what the Law commands” Romans 3:28 (GNT)
 
Hallelujah
 
DIG DEEPER:
(Acts 13:13-52; Romans 3; Romans 4:1-25)
 
WE PRAY
– That our minds will be stayed on the gospel of our Lord Jesus that we will not depend on our works but continue in the glory of the gospel.
 
BIBLE READING
Day 86: 1 Samuel 4-6
 
DECLARE THESE WORDS:
– I am justified by faith
– The life of Christ is my life.
– I am perfected by faith in Christ not by my deeds.
– My boast is in the Lord’s finished work of Christ.
OH Hallelujah, GLORY TO GOD!!
