Justified by Faith

By faith we are justified,
And find approval through God;
With having Christ crucified,
Curing us where we are flawed.

That is why we now have peace,
With God for what Christ had done;
Having all our sins release,
And salvation has been won.

Through Christ we now can approach,
God and stand in His favor;
With Jesus as our coach,
As well as being our Savior.

We can brag with confidence,
Receiving glory from God;
Through a divine providence,
If we will honor and laud.

We also brag when we hurt,
Which causes faith to endure;
Strengthening it to exert,
With perseverance for more.

Endurance creates character,
As character builds the trust;
With Christ as the instructor,
As we meet God who is just.

His love will enter your heart,
Via the Holy Spirit;
The more His Word you impart,
Through His grace not your merit.
