    Justification quotes by:    

Saving faith is an immediate relation to Christ, accepting, receiving, resting upon Him alone, for justification, sanctification, and eternal life by virtue of God's grace.

    Author: Charles Spurgeon

If thou wouldst be justified, acknowledge thine injustice. He that confesses his sin, begins his journey toward salvation. He that is sorry for it, mends his pace. He that forsakes it, is at his journey's end.

    Author: Francis Quarles

Night and day I pondered until I saw the connection between the justice of God and the statement that 'the just shall live by his faith.' Then I grasped that the justice of God is that righteousness by which through grace and sheer mercy God justifies us through faith. Thereupon I felt myself to be reborn and to have gone through open doors into paradise.

    Author: Martin Luther

There are three things which the true Christian desires in respect to sin: Justification, that it may not condemn; sanctification, that it may not reign; and glorification, that it may not be.

    Author: Richard Cecil

The soul is the life of the body, faith is the life of the soul, and Christ is the life of faith. Justification by faith in Christ's righteousness is the golden chain which binds the Christian world in one body.

    Author: James H. Aughey

How pitiful that his mind was overruled by his emotion; his reasoning, overcome by his affection. Why is it that men "did not believe the truth?" Because they "had pleasure in unrighteousness" (2 Thess. 2:12). It is not that the truth is unreasonable but that it is not loved. Hence when one truly turns to the Lord he "believes with his heart (not mind) and so is justified" (Rom. 10:10).

    Author: Watchman Nee

We admit no faith to be justifying, which is not itself and in its own nature a spiritually vital principle of obedience and good works.

    Author: John Owen

We are justified, not by giving anything to God, - what we do, - but by receiving from God, what Christ hath done for us."

    Author: William Gurnall

Justifying faith is not a naked assent to the truths of the gospel.

    Author: William Gurnall

The inner change, justification, is effected at the moment of salvation. The outer change in the believer's daily walk, sanctification, continues throughout life. But the progressive work of sanctification is only fully effective when the radical, inner transformation of justification is realized and appropriated by faith.

    Author: Neil T. Anderson

God has reserved to Himself the right to determine the end of life, because He alone knows the goal to which it is His will to lead it. It is for Him alone to justify a life or to cast it away.

    Author: Dietrich Bonhoeffer

God does not justify us because we are worthy, but by justifying us make us worthy.

    Author: Thomas Watson
