What Does It Mean To Be Justified?

“Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.”
(Romans 3:24)


What does it mean to be justified?

It means to be eternally pardoned from all sin by the precious blood of Jesus Christ (1st Peter 1:18).

It means to be acquitted and vindicated of all charges before the holy justice of God (Jude 24).

It means to be made and regarded righteous in God’s sight (Colossians 1:21-22).

How are sinners justified?

By God as the source, “It is God that justifieth.” (Romans 8:33)

By grace as the spring and fountain, “Justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.” (Romans 3:24)

By Jesus Christ’s sacrifice and blood atonement as the ground, “Being now justified by his blood we shall be saved from wrath through him.” (Romans 5:9)

By His resurrection as the proof and evidence, “Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification.” (Romans 4:25)

By faith as the means to receive this salvation in Christ, “Being justified by faith, we have peace with God.” (Romans 5:1)
