Humanity walks into the courtroom guilty and the sentence for this guilt is death. We have no case to make. The hope that followers of Christ have, however, is the eternal life and righteousness of Christ himself. His righteousness has been imputed to us. Because of this, we will walk out of that courtroom acquitted. We do not go into condemnation; rather we go directly to life. Our resurrection validates our faith when we stand before Him. Ultimately it is not an issue of our salvation when we stand before Him. We will ultimately be judged by our works for our rewards.
