Don't forget what we deserved.

8 Sep

When we downplay the punishment that we rightly deserved, we are not too far from downplaying Christ’s work on the cross.

[25] It (Christ’s wrath-absorbing sacrifice on the cross on behalf of sinners) was to show God’s righteousness, because in his divine forbearance he had passed over former sins.

[26] It (Christ’s wrath-absorbing sacrifice on the cross on behalf of sinners) was to show his righteousness at the present time, so that he might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.

(Romans 3:25-26 ESV)
