Justification- is the act, process or state of being justified by God.
From my understanding, Jesus justified you when He died for your sins. His act of dying on the Cross paid your sin penalty in full. His blood atoned for your sins, and God sees you as if you had never been a sinner. When you accept the gift of Jesus into your heart. in the spiritual realm, Jesus step in and paid your sin penalty for you. You're off the hook, set free from the death that sin demands, and you're in right standing in God's eyes...justified. When you have Jesus in your heart, God doesn't see the sinful you anymore, because you have been justified through His Son, Jesus.
