Two kinds of justification

Posted by appolus on July 25, 2018

There are two kinds of justification in the realms of the Spirit. One we know well, we who are saved are justified by God. By grace through faith we have been found not guilty by virtue of the actions of another, the Lord Jesus on Calvary. Out of this springs life and that more abundantly. The other is the justification of the flesh. The flesh demands to be justified and screams loudly whenever it is assaulted or offended. It leads us quickly out of the presence of God. In order to restore the joy of our salvation, we must deny the flesh its demands. It is a hard battle, perhaps better known as sanctification, a refiners fire, a burning up of the dross in our lives. Brokenness and a contrite heart are a must if we will walk in the Spirit. We see a spectacular example of this when David is taken up with Bathsheba.

For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me. Psa 51:3

Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities. Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me. Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.(Psa 51:9-12)
