Justification is a legal term. It means to declare righteous, to acquit, to pronounce a sentence and to pronounce acceptance. The process of justification is a beautiful thing in the life a believer because through it, God declares us not guilty and He accepts us - all because of the blood of Jesus. Works is the process in which we try to make ourselves righteous, but it is futile. Jesus has provided the only way and through Him we are found justified.
