God Justified His Elect

“Who shall lay anything to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth.”
(Romans 8:33)

He against whom sin is committed, the lawgiv­er, and the righteous Judge, justifies them from every charge; not by teaching them the way of justification, nor by infusing righteousness into them, or on account of any works of righteousness done by them, but by pronouncing them righteous through the imputation of the righteousness of His Son unto them: observe, that “God’s elect,” as such, are the objects of justification; which proves the eternity of it; the speciality of it as belong­ing to particular persons, and the everlasting security and continuance of it.
