Justification through His Blood

By Larry R. Lasiter

"But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him." Romans 5:8-9

What does it mean to be justified? Justification is a legal declaration by God of your innocence. Those justified by the blood of Jesus are not merely discharged criminals who have been pardoned. Even though the Bible says that all have sinned and have come short of the glory of God, justification by the blood washes away all records of sins committed. When a sinner is saved and justified his sins are removed from even the memory of God -God has no recollection of their sins. In order to be justified your sins must first be cast into the sea of forgetfulness.

My faithful wife made a mistake with one of our children once and was riddled with guilt and shame for years. She felt as though she was unworthy of forgiveness and each time she prayed she begged God to forgive her. I didnít know she was going through this, nor did the Church or the rest of the family. To all of us Treon was an absolute pillar of strength and faithfulness and was always there to encourage our young women in the Church.

One night during a Praise and Prayer Service the Lord spoke to me as I was praying and told me to go to Treon. When I reached her I was moved to lay my hands on her head and pray a blessing. The prayer was in a heavenly tongue so I did not understand it all, but I did hear God call her "blessed mother." I did not know there was a problem but God did and delivered her that night. When she went into prayer the next morning, from habit she began by asking forgiveness again for the same mistake that she had made, but this time God interrupted her and said adamantly, -"Donít bring that up to Me again!" Then something Jesus had said began to play her mind, -Whom the Lord has set free is free indeed."

God had saved Treon and had justified her by the blood of His beloved Son, and He did not want her to live as though her sins remained. He wanted her to live knowing that she was not only free from the penalty of sin, but free from any record of having committed sin. There can be no greater love than that. Receive it and forever give Him praise.
