DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
Justification Is Free
In any part of the world today, getting judgment in the law court can cost fortune. Irrespective of what the outcome of a case would be, whether you will be discharged and acquitted or condemned, you will need to spend money to hire a lawyer who will handle the case. At the end of the case, one may also need to spend more money paying for damages and some other things. In essence, getting justice in the secular judicial system is not free. But the Good News is that getting justice and judgment that has the value of eternal life is free of charge, through the grace of Jesus and through accepting the redemption that is in Jesus (v. 24).
Point of Emphasis: We are justified freely by Jesus Christ.
Prayer Point: Lord Jesus, thank You for justifying me free of charge.
