Justification seems like an “innocent” word, but most of us use it was never intended. We tend to justify our bad behavior by blaming others for causing us to behave badly or we justify our bad attitudes by blaming circumstances, or we justify our sins by blaming the ENORMOUS and overpowering temptation set before us! All of these are nothing more than excuse making! True justification only comes through a belief in Jesus, and that faith and belief justifies us to stand in the presence of our holy God! We are seen as holy because of Christ, and not because of anything we have done.
