Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies.
There is no doubt that every human brings a tail that can be stepped on. It doesn´t matter how spiritual or good we may believe ourselves, our sinful antecedents would condemn us because according to human justice, the one who does it he will pay it. And not only he has to pay, but he will have a stigma for life for the error committed. How good that God does not act like us! When He forgives us, He forgets our sins forever and applies a true blot and a new account.
It is impossible for us to pretend to stand before God as perfect beings because we all know that we have sinned. When we repent of our sins and give our life to Jesus Christ, we are born again, we are his work and a new creature. But, that does not mean we’ll be in a glass bubble. As long as we remain in this world and this mortal body, we are bound to fail to God again. When that happens, both our mind, the world and the enemy will accuse us of our sin.
What should we do when we fail God? Are we going to listen to the accusatory voices and run away from God? In no way should our attitude be to stand before Him and confess our sin. The Bible tells how God’s reaction will be when we do not hide our transgressions. In Isaiah 1:18 the Bible says, “Come now, and let us reason together,” Says the Lord, “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool.”
God will erase our sins, remove the red color, and our record will go blank. In Colossians 2:13-15 we read, And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses, having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.
The accuser no longer has jurisdiction over you when you belong to Christ, who on the cross left void all judgment against you. And look what God did with your sins, says Micah 7:19, He will again have compassion on us, and will subdue our iniquities. You will cast all our sins into the depths of the sea. Every sin that has been confessed before God will be buried in the deepest depths of the sea abyss. You no longer have to feel guilty about what you have exposed to the Lord.
And God will not only bury our sins but will completely forget them. Isaiah 43:25 says, “I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions for My own sake; and I will not remember your sins.” In short, God erases our confessed sins, changes their color, throws them to the bottom of the sea and forgets them. Then it is clear what Romans 8:33 says, Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies.
If you have given your life to Jesus Christ, God has justified you, not by your works, but by the precious blood of Jesus shed on the cross. You are no longer a slave to sin but a servant of righteousness. Do not listen to the voices that accuse you, confess your faults and give absolute control of your life to Jesus Christ. God bless you.
