"It wasn't so long ago that you were mired in that old stagnant life of sin. You let the world, which doesn't know the first thing about living, tell you how to live. You filled your lungs with polluted unbelief, and then exhaled disobedience. We all did it, all of us doing what we felt like doing, when we felt like doing it, all of us in the same boat. It's a wonder God didn't lose his temper and do away with the whole lot of us. Instead, immense in mercy and with an incredible love, he embraced us. He took our sin-dead lives and made us alive in Christ. He did all this on his own, with no help from us! Then he placed us up and set us down in highest heaven in company with Jesus, our Messiah." -Ephesians 2:1-6

I need to stop justifying my mistakes and accept them as what they are. Justification only leads to more mistakes, over and over again, justified over and over again. But if I acknowledge I have slipped up, then I can learn and leave it behind, never to return again.

Justification will never lead to full life, only an allusion that everything is ok.
