Legally Righteous

L'Chaim Messianic Congregation Lake Worth Florida. Pastor Bruce and Suzi Elman

One day, the wrath of GOD will rightly fall on sinful mankind (Romans 5:8-10); but those who are justified by the blood of MESSIAH (accepted YESHUA as Savior) will be saved from that dreadful punishment! 

Justification means that ABBA THE FATHER, accepts the death of His Son as full payment for our sins (Romans 3:23-26). 

YESHUA is a satisfactory substitute for us to THE FATHER because He is the sinless “Lamb of GOD”! So we are declared righteous in GOD’S eyes when we accept YESHUA as Savior!                 

Think of justification as a legal transaction in which YESHUA placed all our iniquities on His account and then paid them all in full! 

Now, when FATHER GOD looks at us, all he sees is MESSIAH’S  perfection, and we are no longer guilty but are declared legally righteous, even if we don’t always act like it.


1 Corinthians 6:20
For you were bought at a price, therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.

What an awesome privilege to be righteous in GOD’S view! 

Now, that does not mean we can go out and do anything we want! Remember, we are GOD’S children, so let’s not act like children of the devil!

In everything we do, let it bring glory to our Heavenly FATHER! 


With lots of prayers & love,
