A Short Study of Romans 3:24
“Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.”
What does it mean to be justified?
It means to be eternally pardoned from all sin by the precious blood of Jesus Christ (1st Peter 1:18).
It means to be acquitted and vindicated of all charges before the holy justice of God (Jude 24).
It means to be made and regarded righteous in God’s sight (Colossians 1:21-22).
How are sinners justified?
By God as the source, “It is God that justifieth.” (Romans 8:33)
By grace as the spring and fountain, “Justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.” (Romans 3:24)
By Jesus Christ’s sacrifice and blood atonement as the ground, “Being now justified by his blood we shall be saved from wrath through him.” (Romans 5:9)
By His resurrection as the proof and evidence, “Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification.” (Romans 4:25)
By faith as the means to receive this salvation in Christ, “Being justified by faith, we have peace with God.” (Romans 5:1)
