Justification is the gracious act of God in taking up a sinful, guilty person, rightly subject to divine judgment, clearing him from every charge because of the sacrifice of Christ, and placing him righteously before His throne. This constitutes a standing magnificent beyond all thought. There, in the full blaze of the glory of God—there, before the blood-sprinkled throne—there, in the presence of cherubim and seraphim, of judgment and holiness! Oh, it is a marvelous position! What a solid and divine standing! A higher position there could not be for any creature.
