There are times when the words that we speak are helpful to our understanding, and other times when they simply confuse us. Here is one that I found to be confusing, but once I understood it, it became quite helpful.

Justification - The work that God has already done for you. This work is the gift of life, for by Jesus' justificatory and substituational work at the cross, you are made clean. It is Jesus' work on the cross which justifies you as a Child of God. When you come before the judgment seat, you will have to give an account for what you have done in this short time. If God were to ask you why you should be let into heaven, the only acceptable reason is that your soul's position is in Christ who has justified you through his work on the cross to be partakers of light.

Justification : Col 1:12-14 "Giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light. He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of his love, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins."

Justification: Col 1: 19-22 "For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell , and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross. And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled in the body of His flesh through his death, to present you holy, and blameless, and above reproach in His sight."

Justification: 2 Cor 5:18 "Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation. Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us; we implore you on Christ's behalf, be reconciled to God. For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God.
