Justice of God

|We all know that our God is God of love, grace and mercy, but is He also a God of justice? What does the Scripture say? The Scripture also states that “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23); and since we are all guilty of sin, what would God sentence us in keeping with His justice? But His justice demands death “for the wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23). How and through whom can we be justified of our sins in the sight of God? (To be justified means to be declared “righteous,” or to put it negatively, it means to be declared “not guilty.”)|
There is a tendency for us to over-emphasize some of God’s attributes (e.g. grace, mercy and love) at the expense of His other equally important attributes (e.g. wrath, justice and holiness), based on what we want to hear. But it is very crucial that we have an accurate scriptural view of who God really is, in all His character and attributes.
New International Version (NIV) of the Bible is used.
Just fill in the blanks and let’s praise and thank God that He “delivered Christ over to death for our sins and He was raised to life for our justification” (Romans 4:25).
