Justified

Hello Champion Partners and Friends!

We are going to begin today’s blog with a scripture found in the book of Romans. I love Romans because it is a Champion’s book. Everything Jesus did to save us, set us free, and help us to become a Champion for Him in everyday life is found in that book. It contains an order that God established since the foundation of the world. It also contains a process of development as we walk through life finding out who we are in Christ. This book is so full of  revelation knowledge of what God did for us through Jesus’ blood so that we may be victorious.

Today, Champions, we are going to look at Romans 5:8-9. This scripture states:

But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.

Glory to God!  Even when we were sinners, God so loved us that He sent His son to die for us.  Think about that. Even in our worst state in life, our position of unworthiness, God loved us!  Can you say that about yourself? Do you love others who are different from you? Do you love others who have done wrong to you? God did. He was so rich in His mercy and love toward us that He gave His son for us.

Ephesians 2:4-5 tells us:

But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved).

God so loved us that He made us part of His family. We are part of a Champion family!

We are not only Champion members of a Champion family; we, through Jesus’s blood, have been justified. Justified is a very legal term and in God’s legal system. Jesus’ blood legally justified us without us having to do anything other than to lift up our voice and confess Jesus as our savior.  

The Greek word for justified is dikaiow and it means to render righteous, just and free. In other words, through Jesus’s blood we are in right standing with God!  Not only are we in right standing with God, we became the righteous ones in Christ Jesus. We are just, and we are set free!

What are we set free from? The wrath of hell. Praise God! But wait, Champs. Not only are we set free from going to hell, we are set free from the wrath of the adversary’s advancements against us in our day to day life. Praise God! That’s what the blood of Jesus does for us! It makes us a Champion in Jesus through His blood every day of our lives and for eternity.


Today, I plead the blood of Jesus over our partners and friends, and I thank you that every day they grow stronger in their relationship with You, Lord. Thank you that they develop a greater revelation of their justification in You, and they walk in the victories You have provided in Jesus’s blood.
