Doctrine of Justification (Romans 5:1-20)Tommy Boring, November 24, 2019
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
Doctrine of Justification
There is nothing other than faith where we are justified. One can’t get to God unless one is justified. Justification is the purpose to make one righteous in the sight of God. Sin excludes humans from God. Justified, just if I’d never sinned. Romans 4:20-25, God took your sin and swapped it with Jesus’ righteousness. There are entire religions that are founded on the exact opposite as Romans 4:20-25. If you couldn’t earn being justified, how could you do something that removed your justification? The most important question, do you know if you’ve been born again?
We get three things thru justification.
We get peace with God. If you are a sinner then you are an enemy of His and you by choosing not to love His son have chosen to live In Hell for eternity.
We have grace. We wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t from grace. We have all the grace we can handle by faith thru Jesus Christ. Imagine a homeless person that was brought into a mansion, cleaned up , fed, given a bed to sleep in, and a place to stay in peace. All of this was simply given without warrant. The man didn’t deserve it and never did anything to deserve it. This is grace.
We have Hope. Did you know that if you take away hope from a prisoner, they will die? They have nothing to live for. If one has been born again then you have the hope in what’s yet to come. The better day that coming when no more suffering, no more sin, heartache, etc. Romans 5:5

1Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: 2By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 3And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; 4And patience, experience; and experience, hope: 5And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us. 6For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. 7For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. 8But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. 9Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. 10For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. 11And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement. 12Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: 13(For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law. 14Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come. 15But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many. 16And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification. 17For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.) 18Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. 19For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. 20Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound: (KJV)
