Word for the Day Wednesday


One side of justification is positive and includes what God has done for us and given to us.  A technical definition of the word justification is "to put to one's account."  When God justifies a person, He does so by placing to his or her credit the righteousness of Jesus Christ.  This balances the moral and spiritual budget for us, if you will.  God removed all of your sin.  He forgave all of it.  And then He put the righteousness of Christ into your account for the future, the part of justification that a lot of people don't know about.  Do you?  Have you accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior?  Are you justified?
