The Greatness of Grace Is Reflected in Our Salvation from Sin

If you have ever felt depressed, ashamed, condemned, forgotten, or alone, you understand what sin feels like. In our fallen world, sin is woven into the fabric of what it means to be human, and even without a theological definition, all of us can recognize it. We recognize the sorrow and emptiness of sin every day. Sin is not just about ‘doing bad things’: sin corrupts who we are created to be and separates us from the relationship with God we are designed to know and love.

Even once we have accepted His infinite grace, can we truly be justified before God? We may often ask ourselves this question, as many have asked it for generations before us. Throughout scripture we see the question written ‘in between the lines.’ In Ecclesiastes 3:16, King Solomon clearly states the difficulty in finding justice in the world, saying “in the place of justice, even there was wickedness, and in the place of righteousness, even there was wickedness”. We humans regularly fail to define and determine justice. True justice is found in and from God. The justice he offers us through his redemption is completely unmerited and unrestrained by anything we consider ‘just’. The good news of the gospel is that we who are guilty before him can be justified, the price of redemption has been paid, and God’s justice satisfied.

Earlier in Romans 3, Paul drives home the fact that we are all sinners deserving of God’s wrath, but he doesn’t end the discussion there! He continues on into verse 24 with the truth that we are justified through the gift of grace! Titus echoes this thought, as he writes, “being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life” (Titus 3:7).

Through this gift of God’s grace, we are justified, made clean, made Holy, and given the opportunity to share this grace with those around us. Our freedom in Christ springs from the fact that His grace is free, His justification is final, and His redemption is complete. Through His holiness, we are free to live unhindered by shame and guilt, strengthened by the power of the Holy Spirit, and equipped to do what only He can do in and through us. To God be the glory for His matchless, infinite grace!
