God Never Negotiates His Justice

Today I'll share a quote with you that I received in my "Of First Importance" daily e-mail feed (http://www.firstimportance.org/). We often ponder the love of God, how often do we ponder the justice of God?

God Never Negotiates His Justice

“God is loving, but a major part of what He loves is His own perfect character, with a major aspect being the importance of maintaining justice and righteousness. Though God pardons sinners and makes provision for expressing His mercy, He will never negotiate His justice. If we fail to understand that, the cross of Christ will be utterly meaningless to us.”

- R. C. Sproul, The Truth of the Cross (Orlando, FL; Reformation Trust Pub., 2007), 19.
