Justification - Part 2
The sinless life of Christ worked out a perfect righteousness for his people.
V. Concluding Comments on Justification
A. The sinless life of Christ worked out a perfect righteousness for his people.
B. In some cases the term “sanctification” is used in a similar way as justification.
C. Because we are not a consummated new creation, but still in progress, no “good work” can be considered perfect (free from sin).
D. The battle is not between the “old man” and the “new man,” but between Satan, the world, our physical bodies, and indwelling sin.
