What is justification?
Here's the answer:
"Justify" means to prove or say that someone is right, innocent, or free of guilt.
God says we are righteous (sinless) when we place our faith in Jesus’ death for us on the cross. After that, we should continue to show that we believe in Him by doing good works; but these good works do not save us from our sins—only our faith in Jesus saves us. When God forgives us after we trust in Jesus and turn from our sin, He also decides never to see that sin again.

"But the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared. He saved us. It wasn’t because of the good things we had done. It was because of his mercy. He saved us by washing away our sins. We were born again. The Holy Spirit gave us new life. God poured out the Spirit on us freely because of what Jesus Christ our Savior has done. His grace made us right with God. So now we have received the hope of eternal life as God’s children" (Titus 3:4–7).
"He has removed our lawless acts from us as far as the east is from the west" (Psalm 103:12).
