“Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies.”
Paul is asking here a very significant question. If God has justified us, forgiven us, not based on our works but solely on his eternal grace, how can there by any charge leveled against God’s people who have received this grace?
It’s impossible! For a charge to be leveled, there must be some breakage of God’s law. But the righteous requirements of the law, something we humans can never achieve, have been totally met in Jesus’ perfect life, death and resurrection. Therefore, if we are in him and he is in us, all those charges against us because we’ve broken God’s law have been met sufficiently in Jesus.
Being justified by faith solves all charges against God’s people. Therefore, today, if you are in Christ and feel condemnation, it’s not from God! God has declared us right before the world. He can’t condemn you while also justifying you. The divine Judge has spoken.
And I choose to believe him who created me and silence all charges against me.
What about you?
