SCALE OF JUSTICE

Romans5:1 Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand.

The Scene: A scale of justice with the symbolic figures of Jesus on the left scale and Adam, the first man, on the right scale.

Adam’s sin in the garden of Eden weighed down the scale of all mankind in the wrong direction.

Romans 5:18  Consequently, just as the result of one trespass was condemnation for all men, so also the result of one act of righteousness was justification that brings life for all men.

  • Justification: Being saved from the power of sin–just as if man had never sinned.

God sent His only Son, Jesus, to offset Adam’s sin. Through Jesus’ coming and through His death Father God’s scale of justice was brought back into balance for all who choose to believe in the only Son of God.

Romans 3:22-26  This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.  God presented him as a sacrifice of atonement through faith in his blood. He did this to demonstrate his justice, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished– he did it to demonstrate his justice at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus.
