Justification is the opposite to condemnation.

Justification is the act of God's boundless mercy in forgiving all the transgressions of the penitent believer, for the sake of atoning sacrifice of His beloved Son; and restoring the once guilty transgressor to the favor of God, and the hope of eternal life.

The ground on which justification proceeds, is the death of Christ as an atoning sacrifice for sin.

The the source from which justification flows, is the mercy of God.

The instrumental cause or means of justification, is faith in Christ.
[John Angell James]
Titus 3:5-7 ... Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;  Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
Romans 5:1 ... Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:
Galatians 3:24 ... Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.
1 Corinthians 6:11 ... And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God. ❤
