Not justified by works but through faith in Christ


“Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.” Galatians 2:16

Since none of us measure up to the holy demands of God’s law, we do not seek to be just in God’s eyes by our keeping of the law but rather through faith in Christ Jesus, who kept the law perfectly for us and then atoned for our sins by His innocent sufferings and death on the cross.

I have sinned and broken Your law, O God. Forgive my sins and count me just and righteous in Your eyes for the sake of Christ Jesus, my Savior. Amen.

[Scripture is quoted from the King James Version of the Bible.]
