I am a sinner through and through… and before you judge me too harshly, so are you! Whether by thought, in deed, or just because we were born with sinful souls, God’s justice demands that something be done about us. Mankind could not go unpunished while a just and loving Creator stood by and let it happen. Our act of sin was an act of war against God–something kin to a child with a cap gun declaring war against a superpower. Fortunately for us, God is infinitely more forgiving than any person, or than any nation. Instead of demanding justice from us, He instead demanded it from Himself.
“Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have PEACE WITH GOD through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God.” Romans 5:1-2
