PREVIOUS KNOWLEDGE:

MEMORY VERSE: Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 5:1

BIBLE PASSAGE: Psalms 32:1-2; Acts 13:38-39

Psalms 32:1-2
1 Blessed [is he whose] transgression [is] forgiven, [whose] sin [is] covered.

2 Blessed [is] the man unto whom the LORD imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit [there is] no guile.

Acts 13:38-39

38 # Be it known unto you therefore, men [and] brethren, that through this man is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins:

39 And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses.

LESSON INTRODUCTION:

Justification is the act of grace through which one receives forgiveness and remission of sins and is counted righteous before God, through faith in the atoning blood of Jesus.

Justification takes place when God declares those who place their faith in Christ to be righteous. 2 Corinthians 5:21 says, “For he hath made him [to be] sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him” in other words, Jesus became our substitute on the Cross so that we could be made “just” or right with God.

TEXT REVIEW: JOB 14:7-9

i. Through Christ Jesus all sins is recovered and forgiven.

ii. Justification is a blessing that is available to those with a contrite spirit.

iii. Jesus is the only way every man can be justified.

iv. No man can justify himself

v. The way to salvation, redemption and justification is to believe in the person, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

LESSON OUTLINES

Apostle Paul writes of sin and justification in terms of two men, Adam and Christ. Through Adam, sin came into the world “wherefore, as by one-man sin entered into the world, and death by sin….” (Romans 5:12).

Through Jesus, righteousness came into the world “….even so by the righteousness of one of the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life” (Romans 5:18). The sacrifice of Christ covers our sins, allowing God to see us as perfect and unblemished.

Just as circumcision cannot justify the Isrealites, nor water baptism the Gentiles, so can church membership or confirmation not justify anyone by the standards of God’s righteousness and holiness.

Only faith in the atoning work of Jesus Christ on the Cross guarantees universal provision of salvation for all mankind, this could be appropriated on personal basis through faith in Christ Jesus.

JUSTIFICATION THEREFORE COMES:

1. BY GRACE: Titus 3:7, “That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life”.

2. BY FAITH: Romans 3:28, “Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law”.

3. BY BLOOD: Romans 5:9, “Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him”.

4. BY HIS NAME:1 Corinthians 6:11, “….. but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God”.

SUMMARY:
It is only Jesus Christ that have the power to save all men from the terror to come.

CONCLUSION:

Haven been saved through faith in Our Lord Jesus Christ, the redeemed should have evidence to show for His justication. Before he was justified, the sinner was plaqued by the work of the flesh, but having been made a new creature, the life-style, speech, conduct and deposition of the redeemed is more of Christ, having been quickened by the spirit of God.
