It is the glory—and the mystery—of the gospel that the Lord of everything is also the Lord of grace. Infinite power is matched by inexhaustible tenderness. Unrivaled authority is paired with unrelenting kindness.
The Judge of all offers Himself as the Saviour of all—an act so rare, so incandescent in the darkness of our world, that we are driven to our knees in awe and adoration. Christ takes on Himself the sentence that His justice mandates for our sin.
And we who did the crime may do the time: we’re offered favored places at His side forever and for always. “God made Him who had no sinto be sinfor us, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God” (2 Cor 5:20-21).
So stay in grace.
