The Doctrine of Justification

 

Romans 3:24

Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

 

Romans 3:28

‘Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith apart from the deeds of the law. ‘

 

“Justification” is the judicial act by which the Sovereign All-Mighty Holy and Righteous God declares a person “Justified” (Just As They Have Never Sinned) the moment He sees a sinner believe by faith alone in the Gospel (1 Corinthians 15:1-4).

 

In God’s Eyes…

It is “Just-As-You-Never-Sinned”

 

God “JUSTIFIES” a person based on their faith alone in the gospel. Nothing else because we don’t deserve it. We don’t deserve anything. In Galatians 2:16, the apostle Paul writes that no one is Justified by works but through faith alone in the finished work of the cross.

Galatians 2:16

yet we know that a person is not justified by works of the law but through faith in Jesus Christ, so we also have believed in Christ Jesus, in order to be justified by faith in Christ and not by works of the law, because by works of the law no one will be justified.

To repeat…

Justification is that judicial act of God, whereby He declares a person, any person, no matter what they may have done in their past, no matter how many sins they committed, no matter how small or how great those sins may be, no matter what sins they commit in the future; they ARE ‘JUSTIFIED’, “Just as if they have never sinned”. And have peace with God.

Romans 5:1

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

Absolutely mind boggling.

 

Justification is Immediate

The very instant a person believes the gospel of grace (Acts 20:24; 1 Corinthians 15:1-4) God imputes Christ’s righteousness to that person’s account paying for our sin debt in full. 2 Corinthians 5:21, best explains this process and is the heart of the gospel…

 

‘For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.’

 

II Corinthians 5:21

 

In other words, all the horrible and unimaginable suffering that Christ endured during His earthly ministry (before the cross); being mocked, ridiculed, spit on, beaten, whipped, rejected by His own people (Jews); then the suffering pain and agony of the cross. None of it did He deserve because Christ was sinless but He went willingly and was silent; to shed His blood and die on the cross, then was buried, and rose from the dead three days later…never to die again victorious of over ALL.

Christ did it all to pay a debt we could never pay, while we were yet living in sin, enemies of God and completely undeserving of anything from the Sovereign, All-Mighty, Creator God. But because of God’s great love and mercy God opened the windows of heaven and poured out His grace onto ALL mankind.

But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: 

Ephesians 2:4-6

 

The Doctrine of Justification is a Biblical truth that must be studied by all believers because it is for all of us not just the highly educated or seminary grad. All believers can know and understand what it really means to be justified by a Holy God. As we study this tremendous Biblical truth of Justification it will help to build and strengthen your faith.

 

 

I hope that this post has helped in anyway to better understand the Doctrine of Justification. This post is in no way an in debt study on the subject of Justification but I hope it maybe a jumping off point for you to dig into the Doctrine of Justification.
