5 important words to know

This from John MacArthur, quoted in David Kingston's sermon this Sunday. 

In justification, the sinner stands before God as the accused and is declared righteous.

In redemption, the sinner stands before God as the slave and is granted freedom by ransom.

In forgiveness, the sinner stands before God as a debtor, and the debt having been paid is forgotten.

In reconciliation, the sinner stands before God as an enemy, and is led to peace as a friend.

In sonship, the sinner stands before God as a stranger and is adopted as a son.
