Who will bring a charge against God’s elect? God is the one who justifies;
We who belong to Christ, need not fear the day we stand before God to give an accounting. God Himself has declared all those who have received Christ and trust Him for salvation, “Not guilty.”
God Himself is the one whom we have offended. He also is the judge, jury, and executioner. When we chose to choose Jesus as our Savior, God declared us justified, righteous in His eyes.
Our sin has been thrown into the deepest part of the sea (Micah 7:19). You have removed our sin as far as the east is from the west (Psalm 103:12). When we appear before Him we will receive rewards from His hand because we have believed in the One whom He sent to save us.
The enemy would like us to believe differently. He accuses us. He tells us our sins are too bad for God to forgive us. When he comes at us with his lies we need to remind him we are God’s elect. That in God’s eyes we appear justified; just as if we had never sinned.
Father God, thank You for the provision
of Your Son, Jesus,
who took the punishment we deserved
and gave us right standing before You.
Thank You for Your forgiveness.
