I want to look at a controversial subject in Christianity that we need to understand to have a right relationship with Christa€”justification. I think we can help stem that confusion by searching in the Bible and asking God what He has to say about this pivotal facet of faith. We shook hands and Hitler said, pointing to a book that was lying on the table: a€?I had a chance to read your al-Tazkirah.a€?

Others who are on the edge of belief dona€™t know what justification really means, if they can truly have it, and theya€™re afraid of taking that first step toward Christ.
Therefore, to be justified by Christ means that the Lord declares you to be forgiven, untainted by the crimes you have committed against Him. In the book Steps to Christ, wea€™re told that a€?if you give yourself to Him and accept Him as your Savior, then sinful as your life may have been for His sake you are accounted righteousnessa€? (p.
He smiles brightly and says, a€?Herea€™s your gift!a€? Thata€™s really exciting to you, so you walk out, get into your car (because you dona€™t want to look too eager), and open the envelope.
Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one [Jesus] the free gift came upon all men unto justification of lifea€? (emphasis added).
The answer seems clear by what we have already read from Scripture, but leta€™s get more information from Jesus. If you want to understand the science of justification, the parable found in Luke 18 is one of the best ways to learn it. The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. They trusted in their own righteousness while they looked down on others as worthless sinners.
The Pharisee was a part of a sect of Judaism known for its rigid stance of obeying the law, while tax collectors (publicans) were associated with a very loose and scandalous lifestyle. His feelings of guilt and shame cause him to bow his head and beat on his breast, a sign of repentancea€”a genuine display of his sorrow for sin. So according to Jesus, if we come to God humbling ourselves, truly repenting of our sinful deedsa€”confessing our sinfulnessa€”and pleading for His mercy, we will go home from the house of God justified.
That means if you, whoever you are and with whatever sins you carry today, do what this publican did, you can rest assured that before God, Christa€™s character is accounted to you.
His response basically boils down to saying, a€?To hades with your request!a€? For Peter, it was outrageous to think that the gifts of God could be purchased for money. This theology is not any different than what Simon tried to do, even though the Bible has such a severe response to those claiming they can pay for what God gives!
How silly then would it be to give God money, or works, to obtain your salvation in light of the work Christ already did on your behalf? The story of the two thieves who died on crosses next to Jesus gives us a stirring picture of the extremities to which justification can reach. But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation?
Theya€™re both guilty of sedition against their government, perhaps even of murder, and to support their activities they stole. They also find themselves in the same helpless position, unable to do anything to save themselves from their suffering and death.
However, as the hours go by, apparently one of them begins to notice Christa€™s behavior and begins to rethink his attitude. He says to the thief, a€?Assuredly I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradisea€? (NKJV).
After all, if someone gives you an all-expense-paid vacation and you wona€™t even take their phone call a€¦ well, that would be really rude! It happens all the time: Some Christians need a different message than others to draw them close to Goda€™s will. Paul responded to this by saying that people cana€™t earn salvation; rather, it comes as a free gift of God. When the tax collector repented and asked God for mercy, Jesus said he went home justified.
Would he have returned to the sins that put him in bondage before the moment Christ freely gave him forgiveness? The Bible is filled with apostles and prophets talking about how important good works are in this world. Youa€™ve got a wagon called works, and you have a horse thata€™s called gracea€”a free gift from God.

However, James is dealing with new converts who have come into the church believing that since theya€™re justified by faith, obedience doesna€™t really matter.
Here are some good questions to ask ourselves: Did the publican know he was justified when he went home?
We should readily acknowledge that the Holy Spirit speaks to our hearts to give us the peace that God has heard our prayers.
If he did willingly return to the sins of his past, do you think he was a true believer on the cross? When you do that, the wagon, good works, ensures that you have something to show for the end of your journey.
How will the hosts of the universe and the people on earth know that you really are for Christ unless you have something to show for it? All is of Christ and all the glory, honor and majesty are to be given to the Lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the worlda€? (1 Selected Messages, 396).

He also didna€™t say, a€?Lord, Ia€™m a sinner, but look at all the good things Ia€™ve done.a€? No, he simply asked for mercy.
