Faithfulness: The Entry to God's Justice

Living by faith constantly reminds us that sin is disloyalty to God and the wages of sin is death. Those who live by faith must seriously consider God's justice without abusing it. The Bible teaches that faith is the key to God's justice . According to the book of Hebrews 11:6, " Without faith, it is impossible to please God ". This implies that in order to receive God's justice, you must first have faith in him. Faith is not just belief in God's existence but a trust in his character and promises. 

Being justified through faith in Jesus Christ means living a life of justice and obedience to God's law , which is necessary for entering the kingdom of heaven and obtaining sanctification. 

However , taking God's justice for granted is very dangerous. You should live in accordance to his justice , trusting that he is working in our lives. A life of faith pleases God and will lead to a fulfilled life. As we live by faith and experience his justice, we can also expect to see his glory and our lives will be filled with his light. 

Christ's faithfulness on the cross has already accomplished the work of salvation and our faith in Christ is solely by God's grace . Faith makes us right with God. Our actions and works cannot make us right with God . This is because faith leads us to accept God's grace and forgiveness and also experience his justice. We are made right with God by placing our faith in Jesus. No one can be justified before God by the works of the law , but now God's righteousness has been revealed through faith in Jesus Christ . 

Justice is the very essence of God , given as an act of grace to all who put their trust in God. It is through this justice of God, through faith in Christ Jesus for all who believe that everyone is justified by his grace as a gift , through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus ( Romans 2: 21- 26). 

One way of entering into God's justice in the life of faith, is to show grace and compassion , to those who are in need .

Justice is clearly an act of God's grace and cannot be claimed as a right because we have sinned, it must be received as a gift . The fact that it is given makes it an act of grace. This secures for us access to the presence of God . Psalms 89: 14 says, " Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne ; love and faithfulness go before you ".

In the bible the justice of God is revealed through faith for faith as it is written ," The one who is just will live by faith
