Justification by Faith

Summary. If we believe in Jesus we are justified by faith before God. We are no longer guilty of sin and disobedience. Unlike God’s love, God’s justification and grace is conditional. The difference between God’s love and saving grace is that grace is only given to ones that have faith in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Because of God’s love for all of mankind, He has offered us a free gift of salvation through Jesus Christ. Faith comes by us believing in Jesus Christ and God’s promises. Faith is how the prophets and elders in the Bible obtained a good report with God and how we can have a good relationship with God today. See below for Biblical commentary and scriptures concerning justification by faith.
