The word "justified" is a judicial term. As one person put it, to be justified means that God looks at me "just as if I had never sinned." Individuals are justified or declared not guilty before God when they come to faith in Jesus Christ who died to pay the penalty for his or her sins. Jesus met the requirements of divine justice - his death satisfied God's just demand that sin must be paid for and when individuals place their faith in Him, Jesus' payment on their behalf is credited to them as if they had paid the price and they are deemed justified.
