GALATIANS: IT IS FOR FREEDOM THAT CHRIST SET US FREE
Like It Never Happened


Galatians 2:15-21
 

What is JUSTIFICATION?
Basic Definition: Just as though it never __.

Slightly more refined theological definition: “The declaration that somebody is in the right.” Justified means “to declare a person right,” or “to make him right.”

More fully developed theological definition: Justification is the __ of God whereby He declares the believing __ righteous in Jesus Christ.

Justification should not be confused with forgiveness; that is the __ of justification.

Justification should not be confused with __; that is the basis of justification.

  

How does JUSTIFICATION align with positional and conditional truth?

Positional truth declares our eternal __ in Christ.

Conditional truth defines our current __ in the flesh.

My standing is both perfect and permanent. My state is both imperfect and temporary.
 

When the Bible speaks of our standing, it starts with __ (the declarative act of God).
 

When the Bible speaks of our state, it refers to __ (the ongoing process of God’s Spirit).
 

Justification is a glimpse of the __ work; sanctification shows that work in __.

 

What difference does JUSTIFICATION make?

Justification does not effect change; it changes __.

  

Is JUSTIFICATION different than sanctification?

Yes. In justification, God __ righteousness into the believer’s account (Romans 4:11). In sanctification, God __ righteousness to the believer’s actions (Romans 6:1-7; 8:11-14).

  

Why is JUSTIFICATION important?

Justification is at the heart of the believer’s __.
