OPENING PRAYER: Father, help all believers to embrace the price Jesus paid.


PREVIOUS KNOWLEDGE: Leaders should remind members of the need to restitute.


MEMORY VERSE: “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:” – Romans 5:1


BIBLE TEXT: Romans 5:1-21 (KJV)

1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:

2 By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

3 And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;

4 And patience, experience; and experience, hope:

5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

6 For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.

7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.

8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

9 Much more than, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.

10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.

11 And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.

12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:

13 (For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law.

14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam’s transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.

15 But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.

16 And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification.

17 For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)

18 Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one, the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.

19 For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.



20 Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:

21 That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so, might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.


LESSON INTRODUCTION: To be justified means to be absolved and declared free of blame or sin. It is more than forgiveness. The perfection of God’s law and its justice demands necessitates the provision of the solution in Jesus Christ who volunteered to live a righteous life and die a sinners death so that His own righteousness could then be imputed as a gift to everyone who believes in Him.



A. LESSON AIM: To have an unalloyed understanding of how to be justified and the blessings attached to it.

TEACHING OBJECTIVES: At the end of the lesson, members should be able to:
i. Know blessings enclosed in living a justified life.
ii. Know the evidence to show that one is justified.



i. Justification by faith guarantees access to peace with God.
ii. Christ’s love for the world made Him sacrifice Himself for our sins.
iii. There is the provision of an abundance of grace and gift of righteousness through the offering of Christ Jesus.
iv. Through the obedience of Christ to die, we were made righteous.


TEACHING METHOD: The leader should use the lecture method.


TIME MANAGEMENT: Share the teaching time, and use the suggested time schedule.



Two major things are included in the justification:

  1. The sin of the offender is forgiven, and the guilt and punishment of that sin is removed from the sinner. Micah 7:18-19.
  2. The righteousness of Jesus Christ is imputed to the sinner’s account through faith in Jesus. Romans 3:22.


A. By grace. Romans 3:24

B. By the blood of Jesus Christ
C. By the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Romans 4:25. We can therefore say that it is Jesus Christ that makes justification.


To receive justification, you must believe that the Lord Jesus Christ suffered and died for your sin on the cross, Galatians 1:6. Then cry to the Lord for mercy Luke 8:13-14. The conviction of your justification shall be evidenced by the following:

A. Your works, James 2:21-26. Our righteous life is made manifest by good works.
B. You will have peace with God, Romans 5:1.
C. You will have access to God, Romans 5:2. Praying and relating with God will become a joyful thing.



ACTIVITY: What are gains received through the price Christ paid at Calvary?

SUMMARY: Through Christ’s pains, we gain divine placement.

CONCLUSION: Are you already justified? Your prayer life is one of the strong indicators if you have one, If you have not been justified, there is an opportunity for you today to do so.


  1. Father, thank You for the complete work of my justification.
  2. Father, please revive me in doing good works.
  3. Father, please silence every whisper that tends to condemn me within my heart.
  4. Father, please increase my closeness with You through my prayer life.
  5. Father, please help all our House Fellowship Leaders and Members to live and enjoy the benefits of their justification in Jesus Christ.
  6. Father, we pray in Jesus’ Name that everyone in RCCG shall live a life of justification to enjoy resurrection unto life on the last day.



MONDAY: By faith, you are saved and you receive justification, Romans 3:24-46.

TUESDAY: The resurrection is the sealant, Romans 4:25.

WEDNESDAY: It is not by works but a free gift, Romans 5:16-28.

THURSDAY: Sole entity at the centre of justification, 1 Corinthians 1:30.

FRIDAY: Belief is an ingredient, Galatians 3:6.

SATURDAY: His plans for justification predate you. What an organised God, Galatians 3:8.

SUNDAY: We are His image when we are justified – The peace! Romans 5:1.
