What a “just man” is according to the New Testament?

A just man is a man who has stopped all rebellion against God. Every sin is forgiven and the heart of a just man is made holy. A just man is without sin and obedient to God. In a state of justification there is no condemnation from God because sin and disobedience is gone. The heart and life is made right because of what Christ did for you at Calvary. Your righteousness comes from the work of Christ not from your own human works. The conscience of a just man is freed from guilt by the power of a living Christ. The heart, the walk, and the life of a justified believer is in harmony with God through faith in Christ. Faith in Christ gives man access to the Grace of God that makes man a new creation and justifies the sinner….according to God’s workmanship. A justified man is no longer a criminal in the eyes of God (unless he commits another crime).

In Justification by Grace the believer’s sin and rebellion against God has ceased. A believer is not a lawbreaker. No longer does man violate God’s Law. The Holy spirit gives a just man the desire to cease from sin. The Holy Spirit gives the just man a new nature. A moral change comes over the human soul by the power of God’s Divine Grace. A just man was tired of the old life in repentance. Then Grace comes in and a just man now has realization that only Christ offers this “new and better” life. A justified state by God’s Grace could not be found or obtained by any other means known to man outside of Christ.

Some may find it hard to believe but sin is not essential to the life of a child of God nor does the Bible condone sin. Holiness of heart is the sacred theme of the Bible and is found in Christ. Holiness is essential to the life of a child of God. Rebellion does fit into the life of a child of God and separates man from God’s Grace. Disobedience is not a product of God’s Grace but a sin of unbelief.

A justified life is the down payment to a life with Christ. After Justification, the Spirit of God can can take full possession of you. When you find forgiveness and true holiness that comes from a state of Justification by Grace… Then, you can also find deliverance from the Adamic life that still wars in your members. The Adamic life (self) not the act of sin but the very root of sin that tries to have dominion in your justified life…God can rid man of that also. How? By Sanctification that also comes from the Grace of God.

Justification is the down payment of the Spirit’s work in Salvation. Sanctification is the final work of Holy Spirit (after Justification)on this side of Heaven. A just man is a man who has stopped all rebellion against God. Every sin is forgiven and the heart of a just man is made holy. A just man is without sin and obedient to God. God is a justifier of men but when men are justified they’re supposed to walk according to the Law of the Spirit in Christ Jesus. A justified man is not a lawbreaker or a violator. A justified man has God given power to “mind the Spirit”.

Since 1988 I’ve been writing and doing service for the Lord. It all began in 1987 after a personal walk with the Lord. The personal walk with the Lord turned into extensive Bible studies which later evolved into blogging in early 2000. At present I write, author, and publish several different sites on the Internet. My Blogs contain a vast library of Theological writings, teaching videos, and preaching audios that currently go around the globe for the cause of Christ. I write at Christian Blessings on Wordpress, Holy Hubert Lindsey Group on Facebook, Churches on Trial at Google, publish You Tube videos, record sermons at sermon.net/holy, etc. I also pastor a Church called the Upper Room in Williamsburg, Ohio . My secular Blog called Southwestern Ohio Fishing on Wordpress is where I write about experiences with my son and fishing partner Chad where we together enjoy Mother Nature’s beauty mixed with Father God’s creation.

  1. I am curious…do you believe, then, that a person who is justified is fully will then be completely sinless in “real-world” application? As in, a person who is justified before God (“saved”) will never sin again, or he will cease to be justified? What do you make of the Apostle John’s statement in his first epistle, chapter 1: “If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” I am in full agreement that a child of God should not live a life characterized by sin, as John states later in this same epistle, but it is plain that our lives will still, unfortunately, bear the occasional stain–for which we will still need the blood of Christ as a cover.

    Rick, that is an excellent explanation of God’s work in those He is saving through the finished work of Christ. Simply put, we should look like who we are, not who we once were… or we should question if we’re who we claim to be. Great words, friend.

    What an excellent and concise teaching on the deep and crucial truths about living a Christ-centred life…Thank you for explaining so clearly — the truly amazing and complete work of redemption – and the immeasureably freeing power of the New Creation to break the stranglehold of sin, through the sanctifying and powerful work of the Holy Spirit. Romans 12:1 comes to mind, “I urge you…by the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ…to offer yourselves as a living sacrifice…holy and acceptable..which is your spiritual worship and reasonable service (paraphrased)

    There is perfect peace in the life of a justified man because “you can also find deliverance from the Adamic life that still wars in your members”.. It must be a life of faith when no members war within you as all are subject to the Spirit.

    “A justified man has God given power to “mind the Spirit”. So very spiritually appropriate to end this post with these words. Bless you always.
