The Verdict in God's Courtroom
Those who are condemned because they broke God's holy law will one day face divine justice at the great white throne judgment. The only way of escape is to trust God's perfect man and man's perfect God - the Lord Jesus Christ! He satisfied divine justice for all who repent and believe in Him. Those who desire to be justified (declared righteous) must believe that God justifies...
by His grace, not by your merit
by His finished work, not by your works
by His gift of faith, not by your baptism
by His righteousness, not not by your righteousness
by His one offering for sin, not by your offerings
by His blood, not by your indulgences or purgatory
by His perfect obedience not by your obedience
by what He has done, not by what you do.
Those who have been justified by God have this great promise: There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.
