Justified Freely

Being justified FREELY by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

Romans 3:24

The Greek word translated as “freely” above is “dōreán”. It literally means “without cause”. Romans 3:24 is telling us that we were justified (declared to righteous) without any particular cause in ourselves. In other words, we didn’t do anything to merit our justification (our right standing before God). We were justified freely by His grace (unmerited favor). Our justification was accomplished, not by anything we have done but only because of what Jesus has done for us. Justification is only freely available to us because our Savior, Jesus Christ, paid the price for it, a price that we were unable to pay. At one time, we were all slaves to sin, but Jesus paid the ransom that, through faith in him, we could be set free from sin and have eternal life.”

For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Romans 6:23
