Scripture Reading: I Corinthians 6:11

The believer is not only washed and sanctified, but he is  also justified. This means that God declares him to be  righteous. It is God's assertion that He sees the believer as  righteous now and forever. We, being in Christ, are partakers  in his death and resurrection (Romans 6:3-5) and also of His  righteousness. II Corinthians 5:21 says, " ... we are made the  righteousness of God in Him."

In his epistles, Paul often refers to justification by faith.  Three times he uses an Old Testament quote from Habakkuk  2:4 which says, " ... the just shall live by faith." (See Galatians  3:11, Romans 1:17, and Hebrews 10:38.) He also refers to  Abraham as the great example of one counted righteous by  faith saying, "Abraham believed God, and it was counted to  him for righteousness" (Romans 4:3 & Galatians 3:6).

David is also a noted example of this principle. We read  in Romans 4:6, "Even as David also described the blessedness  of the man, unto whom God imputes righteousness without  works." Paul often refers to the truth ofthe righteousness of  Christ that is imputed (reckoned) to the believer. We have  received the gift of righteousness (Romans 5:17) and because  of this, we are declared to be righteous (justified) by God. We  have a righteous standing before Him, and there is no  condemnation to them who are in Christ. We are justified freely by His grace. (See Romans 8:1 and 3:24.)

How God Saves Men
Believing Christ DIED, that’s HISTORY.
Believing Christ DIED for YOU SINS and Rose again that’s SALVATION.
Read Acts 16L31 Romans 1:16, and 1. Corinthians 15:1-4
