The following sermon was preached by Rev. Calum I. Macleod at the Wednesday night prayer meeting, 10 of March, 2010. We often judge our standing with God on the basis of how we feel but this is folly. Because, it is by faith that we are justified in the sight of God. Our feelings and moods toward God will change like the wind but faith in Christ is something we either possess or do not possess. This sermon looks at the background to why we needed to be justified by God. Secondly, at he basis upon which God chose to justify sinners (which was His everlasting love for sinners). And, finally, the blessings that flow to us from God on account of the fact that we are now justified and made righteous before Him.
The text is Romans 5:1…Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
