Who shall bring a charge against God's elect? It is God who justifies. Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.
This verse in Romans is a favorite of mine lately. We are God's elect, He has chosen us as His people, His precious treasures. This verse starts our with the big question, Who brings a charge against someone like that?
Well...The accuser does. We've seen it over and over again, right? The enemy of our soul is constantly bringing accusations against us in various forms. Sometimes we are guilty, sometimes not. Still he accuses with a vicious tenaciousness.
But, there is always hope for every accusation. Guilty or not, God justifies. Have you noticed in this verse that there is not a BUT? It simply says, God justifies. He does this because He is Judge of all, and when you go to him with repentance, He will justify! What gives Him the power to do this? Christ Jesus!
The accuser may try to condemn you because of your actions, past or present, but the action of Christ is so much bigger! He is there at the right hand of God interceding for you giving power through His blood. It is because of His amazing action, that God justifies you and deems the accuser powerless.
Do you realize that this very day you walk among the very elect?
