With one quick click of the mouse, we can justify the right margin as we type. People my age can remember when justifying the margin on an old manual typewriter was tedious and time-consuming. So most of the time we contented ourselves with a ragged right edge.
The New Testament has a lot to say about justification—not of margins but of our very souls. This is something we could never do for ourselves.
But He can!
Jesus takes our messy, sinful, ragged edges, and He brings us into line with the holiness of our Righteous God.
Only He can make us right; He alone can justify (1 Corinthians 6:9-11).
“The LORD our righteousness” (Jeremiah 23:6).
