Sunday Meditation – Justice Satisfied

“Since God is just, he cannot condemn the believer, since Christ has satisfied his debts. Does Satan or conscience set forth your sin in all of its discouraging circumstances? God has set forth Christ as a propitiation. O how comfortable a text is this! It is real, proper, and full. His blood is the blood of assurance. The father with great severity exacted satisfaction for our sins upon his soul and body. With the obedience of his Son he was fully pleased and satisfied. Our faith in the satisfaction of Christ is built on the everlasting sealed truth of God. We should humbly adore the grace of God in providing such an assurance for us.”
