Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:
What Is Justification?
Justification is God’s act of removing the guilt and penalty of sin while at the same time declaring a sinner righteous through Christ’s atoning sacrifice.
9 For if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
10 For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved.
11 As the Scriptures tell us, “Anyone who believes in him will not be disappointed.”
12 Jew and Gentile are the same in this respect. They all have the same Lord, who generously gives his riches to all who ask for them.
13 For “Anyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
Many people confuse justification with forgiveness. They are two different things.
Justification is more than forgiveness.
To justify means to declare righteous. The law and justice of God demands death as the penalty of sin, but the mercy of God rescue sinners from death.
23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
WHAT IS INVOLVED IN JUSTIFICATION?
1. The first one is that not only is the sin forgiven, but also the guilt and punishment of that sin is removed far from the sinner.
18 Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy.
19 He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.
2. The second one is that the perfect and righteousness of God is given to the sinner through faith in Jesus Christ.
Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference.
HOW CAN YOU RECEIVE JUSTIFICATION?
1. Have faith and believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for your sins.
Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.
2. Cry to the Lord for mercy. Therefore, if you want to be justified believe that Jesus Christ died for you and call on God to be merciful on you, a miserable sinner.
And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.
14. I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.
Thank You Jesus.
