Justified = Peace

Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, Romans 5:1 NIV

What does it mean to be justified? The dictionary says declared or made righteous in the sight of God. We justly deserve punishment for our sins, but that is not what Paul is talking about in this verse. We are seen as righteous in the sight of God because of our faith in Jesus. We can have peace in knowing that the blood of Jesus covers us. When God justifies us, He creates a clean heart in us and renews a right spirit.

Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Psalms 51:10 NIV
