Justification

Romans 4:25 Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification. 

‘Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification’ He died for our sins (1Pet. 2:24) and was resurrected for our justification (Rom. 5:10; 1Cor. 15:1-23).

‘Justification’ seven facts about justification [Greek: dikaiosis] the act of God declaring people free from guilt and acceptable to Him and counting them righteous (3:25; 5:18). Dikaioma is only another word rendered “justification” (5:16). Justification is by faith (3:24-4:25; 5:1; Gal. 2:16; 3:24). Justification is the universal remedy for sin (3:24-4:25). Justification a fulfilment of the Abrahamic covenant (4:1-25). Justification by faith illustrated: Abraham before the law (4:1-4, 9-25) and David under the law (4:5-8).

Justification of believers is by: (1) God (3:26); (2) Christ’s resurrection (4:25); (3) Holy Spirit (1Cor. 6:11); (4) Blood (3:24-28); (5) Grace (3:24; Tit. 3:7); (6) Faith (Acts 13:39; Rom. 5:1); (7) Prayer (Luke 18:14); (8) Obedience (5:18).

Eight results of justification by faith: (1) Peace with God (5:1); (2) Access by faith into grace; (3) Standing in grace; (4) Joy and hope (5:2); (5) Joy in tribulations (5:3-5); (6) Love of God in the heart (5:5-8); (7) Holy Spirit given to us (5:5; 8:9); (8) Saved from wrath (5:9-10). Seven Ways that “justification” is used: To declare what one is (1Tim. 3:16); to esteem a thing properly (Mat. 11:19); to commend or praise (Luke 7:29); to clear from all sin (1Cor. 4:4); to declare righteous (Mat. 12:37); to set free or escape from (Acts 13:39). to pardon sin (3:20-28; 4:2; 5:1, 9; 8:30; Luke 18:14; 1Cor. 6:11; Gal. 2:16-17; 3:11, 24; 5:4; Tit. 3:7).
