JUSTIFIED (justify, justification): Means that you are no longer guilty of Sin in the eyes of God and his Holy Law. Through the works of the Law, man comes short and thus the Law can only condemn the sinner. Jesus Christ shed his Holy blood on the cross as a payment for the sins of mankind. When a sinner receives Jesus by faith as Lord and Savior, the blood of Christ is applied to pay for their sins. Also, Christ's righteousness as applied to the Believer so that they stand not only "guiltless" before God, but perfectly HOLY and Unblameable in his sight.
