Good Afternoon Saints,
*Understanding God’s Righteousness Part 3*
By: Isaac Oluwaseun Agbenla
Bible Text: Romans 5:1
*Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:*
Salvation is the seal of man’s reconciliation with God. Salvation validates a believers as a friend and the heirs of God. The war between man and his creator ends at the altar of sacrifice. Jesus died to serve as ransom for the peace offering that would abolish the enmity between the creator and his creation.
You see, the day you become born again genuinely, you have signed eternal peace agreement with God. This agreement can only be destroyed if you choose to pull out of the agreement because God will never breach his agreement. God accepted Jesus offer of himself as penalty for your sins and you are declared righteous, guiltless and acquitted the day you ask Jesus to be your Lord and Saviour. If you haven’t done that before, do it NOW.
You see, whatever evil happens thereafter is not from God but the devil. Many of us have made mistakes but the agreement hasn’t been broken because Jesus our advocate is at the right hand of God making intercession for us before the father.
God is not mad at you again. You have failed but It is not the end. God has not stopped loving you. He can’t and would never stop loving no matter your failures and mistakes. Many pastor will condemn and hate you for disappointing them but God won’t abandon you.
See what Jesus said years ago about you:
In John 10:29, he says:
*My Father, which gave (You) to me, is greater than all; and NO MAN IS ABLE TO PLUCK THEM OUT OF MY FATHER’S HAND*.
No man here includes the devil himself. Devil can’t take you away from God except you choose to follow him.
You see, God doesn’t like sin. He hates sin but he doesn’t hate you that commit the sin as a believer. You’re precious to God and he want you to grow spiritually to know his deeper love for you. God is waiting for you to come out of that mistake and embrace the truth about his righteousness already imputed in you.
Beloved, as a believer, it’s possible you have lost everything and everyone but I can assure you that you haven’t lost God’s love and his righteousness. You think it’s your works that made you righteous before him?. That’s not the truth. Righteousness which means right standing with God is a gift you receive freely at salvation. Yes, you have defile your consecration to God but that isn’t the end your sonship .
In 1 John 2:1, the Bible says :
*My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:*
This is the main reason why God’s love and his righteousness in you cannot depreciate. Jesus is right there praying on your behalf before the father.
Note: Until you give up on God, God won’t give up on you.
You can rise again. God still loves you just has he loves you when he sent Jesus to die for your sins.
In Romans 8:1, God is saying to you:
*There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit*.
Start walking in the Spirit by asking God to forgive you and tell him how much you love to please him. He will mend your broken heart.
Glory to be God
