By Faith

 

I am not justified
by works

but by my faith
in Christ

for with Him I’ve
been crucified

so in me
He’s alive.

**********

I can live by faith for You are with me.

**********

“. . . knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ, even we have been blessed in Christ Jesus, that we might be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the law; for by the works of the law no flesh shall be justified.”

“I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.”

Galatians 2:16,20 NKJV

Rejoice In Hope

 

Before I
was even born

my Jesus died
for me

so I can know
how much I’m loved

having the hope of His
glory.

**********

You are with me and give me hope.

**********

“Therefore having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.”

“But God demonstrates HIs own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

Romans 5:1,2,8. NKJV

Not In Vain

 

In Me you shall
be justified

and in Me you
shall glory

for you were not
created in vain

but to live out My
salvation story.

My purpose is established in You.

“Rain down, you heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness; let the earth open, let them bring forth salvation . . .Who is God, who formed the earth and made it, who established it, who did not create it in vain, who formed it to be inhabited; I am the LORD and there is no other. I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth; I did not say to the seed of Jacob, ‘Seek Me in vain’; I, the LORD, speak righteousness, I declare things that are right. In the LORD all the descendants of Israel shall be justified, and shall glory.” Isaiah 45:8,18,19,25 NKJV

Justified

source – focusonlinecommunities.com

 

“Would you indeed annul My judgement?
Would you condemn Me that you may be justified?”  Job 40:8

Justify is defined as:
1.  to show to be just, right, etc.
2.  to free from blame or guilt
3.  to supply good grounds for

Lord, I could not be justified apart from what You did for me on the cross.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

The Justifier

What lengths would I go to
to feel justified
that my life and actions were right
in my own eyes
when only You can truly
take away my shame
standing me in good stead
by the glory of Your name.
