Oh To Be Wise-Meditations
Oh to be wise in this: God is just and will not let the guilty go unpunished, but yet extends mercy to all. His Law is Love and Peace for all mankind but we are all guilty of breaking it. Jesus came to this world to be a propitiation for our sins. He offered up His Life to pay our sin debt to God. In this way God kept His Word from the beginning. He did not let guilty sinners go free but put that punishment upon Himself. Hating the very thing that He hates to do which is allowing not guilty people to be punished. Jesus was not guilty of anything and suffered a guilty man's verdict. By this act of God, Justice was served and Mercy was preserved. We have an awesome opportunity to live for God now and share His Forgiveness with others. It is possible to live for yourself and be under the wrath that God saved you from. In this life alot of things don't make sense and never will. You were made for eternity and not for the temporal things in this world. Death is a reminder to chose God's plan of salvation and not the world's way of preservation.
