“What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.”
If God had already decided to cover us with His righteousness in Jesus Christ even before the creation, then no one would be able to disturb it. By believing in the righteousness of God, and not through the Doctrine of Justification, those who have become genuinely sinless are the true children of God.
As such, not all religious people are right. Few people get persecuted just for believing in Jesus nowadays, but many of those who know the true righteousness of God have been persecuted. However, the people who became children of God by believing in His righteousness can never be separated from God. When God gave us the gospel of His righteousness, who can be against them?
God has given everything to us as a gift
“He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?” (Romans 8:32)
For those who have received God’s righteousness by believing in His Son, God gave everything as a gift—the Kingdom of Heaven, the privilege of becoming the children of God, the grace of understanding His Word, the blessing of being able to live as a worker of the righteousness, and the blessing of eternal life.
God gave us His Son in order to make us His children. What else would He not give us? God has given those who receive the true faith through His righteousness all the blessing of the heaven and earth. The believers and the servants of God praise Him forever because of His righteousness.
Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect?
“Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also rise, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us” (Romans 8:33-34).
No one can bring a charge against the people whom God has chosen with His righteousness in Jesus Christ, for Jesus, with the righteousness of God, has made them free of sin. People who believe in the righteousness of God through Jesus Christ have no sin in their hearts. That is because God, not another, made those who believe in His righteousness sinless.
The Son of God, Jesus Christ, came to the earth in the flesh of a man, was baptized by John the Baptist, took upon Himself the burden of all the sins of the world, died on the Cross and was resurrected from the dead in three days, and became the Lord to those who believe.
This is why we cannot say that they, who became righteous by believing in God’s righteousness, are sinners and wrongdoers. Even now, God acknowledges those who believe in His righteousness. As an evidence of this, the Holy Spirit dwells in their hearts. That is why no one can libel God’s righteousness or those whose sins have been forgiven by believing in His righteousness.
The righteousness of God appeared through the baptism of Jesus Christ, the shedding of His blood on the Cross, and His death and resurrection. Jesus Christ, after fulfilling all the righteousness of God, sits on the right hand of God as our Savior and interceder.
