Justification

Justification

(Justification means that we are legally made right before God as a result of God’s forgiveness of our sins through the sacrificial blood offering of Jesus.)

  1. Origin of justification:
    1. Made available through grace (Romans 3:24; 5:17-21; Titus 3:7).
    2. Made possible by Jesus’ blood (Romans 5:9).
    3. Made possible by Jesus’ resurrection (Romans 4:25).
    4. Made possible by sacrifice of Jesus (Romans 5:18).
    5. Made applicable by faith (Acts 13:39; Romans 3:26-28; 5:1; Gal 3:8, 24).
  2. Means of justification:
    1. Justified by God’s grace (Romans 3:24).
    2. Justified by faith (Romans 3:28; 5:1; Gal 3:8).
    3. Justified by works (James 2:21-25).
    4. Justified by Jesus’ blood (Romans 5:9).
  3. Necessity of justification:
    1. To receive forgiveness of sins (Acts 13:38-39).
    2. To have peace with God (Romans 5:1).
    3. To be heirs of eternal life (Titus 3:7).
  4. Conditions for justification:
    1. Believe in Jesus (Acts 13:39; Romans 3:26; 5:1).
    2. Obey the gospel (Romans 8:30; 2 Thess 2:14).
    3. Abide in faith (Romans 3:26-30; 5:1; Gal 3:24).
    4. Maintain works (Eph 2:10; James 2:21-26).
  5. One is not justified by the following:
    1. Perfect keeping of law (Romans 3:20; Gal 2:16; 5:4).
