“…Let them bring out their witnesses that they may be justified; or let them hear and say: ‘It is truth’” (Isa 43:9, NKJV)! “…Christ died for the ungodly” (Rom 5:6, NKJV) “…when we were dead in sins…” (Eph 2:5). “…He… carried our sorrows…; He was wounded for our transgressions…. The Lord… laid on Him the iniquity of us all, …when [He made] His soul an offering for sin…. By His knowledge My righteous Servant shall justify many…” (Isa 53:4-6, 10 & 11, NKJV). “…God… reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ…” (2 Cor 5:18-19, NKJV) when He “…was delivered for our offences, and was raised for our justification; …justification of life” (Rom 4:25; 5:16 & 18). “…Being justified freely by His grace, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, …God… demonstrated… that He… [is]… the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus” (Rom 3:23-26, NKJV). “…Having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God…” (Rom 5:1-5, NKJV). The effects of the completed work of Christ for humanity is justification. “…Therefore…, be strong in the grace that is in Christ…” (2 Tim 2:1). “…It is a good thing that the heart be established with grace…” (Heb 13:9), “whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear” (Heb 12:28). “Grace be with you all…” (Heb 13:25).
