Justified Not By Law But By Faith

Yet we know that a person is not justified by works of the law but through faith in Jesus Christ, so we also have believed in Christ Jesus, in order to be justified by faith in Christ and not by works of the law, because by works of the law no one will be justified. โ€“ Galatians 2:16

Thank God that we aren't justified by works of the law, for it's impossible for any man on man's power alone to fulfill God's law. All humans have all sinned against God with the exception of Jesus.

We receive justification by faith alone.

I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. โ€“ Galatians 2:20

When a person becomes a believer in Christ, they die to themselves and are born again with Christ in them. We give our lives from our sinful desires over to Christ, and submit ourselves to him.
