Sunday Morning Sermon: Assurance of Salvation through Justification | Romans 5:1 | Steve Wainright
“Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.” –
Romans 5:1

If you misunderstand the doctrine of justification, you cannot have the joy of someone who has full assurance of their salvation. Justification happens at a particular point in time…it’s a completed action! It is only because of God’s grace that we are justified (declared righteous, declared to be in a right standing with God).

Scripture at Sunrise 12.29.2014

Sunday Morning | Pastor Steve Wainright | Galatians 3:10-14 | Redeemed (Audio)
“Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us…” — Galatians 3:13

The law shows our inability in the flesh to please God. The law demands perfection and we are all cursed. No one is justified by the law, but by FAITH.

Scripture at Sunrise 5.7.09

“Therefore, as one trespass led to condemnation for all men, so one act of righteousness leads to justification and life for all men.” –Romans 5:18

“The voice that spells forgiveness will say: ‘You may go: you have been let off the penalty which your sin deserves.’  But the verdict which means acceptance [justification] will say: ‘You may come; you who are welcome to all my love and my presence.’ “

—Sir Marcus Loane, quoted in John Stott, The Message of Romans (Downers Grove, Ill: InterVarsity Press,  1994), 110
