128. How are we justified?
By grace through faith, by accepting Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord and His life becoming our life.
- God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation. For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. (2 Corinthians 5:19,21)
- For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.” (Romans 1:16-17)
- Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith apart from the deeds of the law. (Romans 3:28)
