Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand.

Romans 5:1-2

What do Christians have in Christ Jesus? What has been credited to the account of the Believer as a result of their salvation? Let’s seek to find a brief answer in this post.

Christians are justified through the blood of Christ. The justified are forgiven and their guilt is removed forever. No matter what may come, the saved are clean before the Lord.

Those who have received justification are also righteous in the righteousness of Christ. The righteousness of Jesus is applied to the Christian’s account while the sin of the Believer is transferred to Jesus account. This is a powerful, divine exchange born of God’s love.

Saved people are reconciled to God. All of this takes place through the gift of God (Ephesians 2:8-9) and is secure forevermore. The Lord will in no way cast out His children.

This is just a small sampling of all that we have in Christ. But, it is more than enough to bring Jesus glory and honor forever. What a Savior!
