    God Justifies the Wicked

    Is 55:6,7 Seek the LORD while He may be found, Call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, And the unrighteous man his thoughts; Let him return to the LORD, And He will have mercy on him; And to our God, For He will abundantly pardon.

    God's call is to the wicked. And as such the wicked are capable of seeking God. He earnestly desires they repent and be saved. For He "wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth." 1Tim 2:4 Yes, upon his repentance, his forsaking his lifestyle of sin and his sinful thoughts and intentions, God justifies the wicked by faith. "To the man who does not work but trusts God who justifies the wicked, his faith is credited as righteousness." Rom 4:5 Works of repentance do not earn one salvation, but indicate the quality of faith that saves.

    David says the same thing when he speaks of the blessedness of the man to whom God credits righteousness apart from works: "Blessed are they whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered. Blessed is the man whose sin the Lord will never count against him." Rom 4:6-8

    In Grace God Justifies the wicked, as no one is not wicked among men.
    In Grace, God does not Justify those who He Says He Does Not Justify.
    His Word is Always Truth.
