God’s love or his divine justice?

Most of us like everything about God that has to do with his love. Yes, he is certainly LOVE.

But, just how closely does his love and justice run together? Now, we all want justice to be served while crime is being done on this earth, right? If someone commits a crime that is against someone else, we want justice, right?

What about God and the ultimate crime (so to speak) against Him? The crime against all He is and all He stands for, His Holiness. Wow, now that is something that you will not hear about everyday. Who is talking about God’s holiness in this day? When was the last time you heard about it? Even, when was the last sermon at church you heard about it? Well, maybe if you attend a “hell-fire and damnation” church, and if so, your probably tired of hearing about it, or maybe you have heard so much about it, that there isn’t an ounce of God’s love in you. If that’s the case, you need to fall on your knee’s and cry out to God for more of his love.

His love and his justice must be balanced.

In the evermore popular book of John, in the most popular chapter three, Jesus takes us through both “Love” and “Justice”. I always love how we do not need to get complicated in God’s word to see how clear and to the point He is. The problem is and always has been, our minds, our intellect wants to complicate the simple truths of God.

I am going to share what He gave me this morning from John 3:16-20, 36.

“Out of God’s love, he gave his Son as the sacrifice for Sin. By believing that He did this, and receiving personally this atonement of His Son for our sins, we escape condemnation which is God’s divine justice for sin. By believing in the atonement of Jesus for our sins, we escape death (to the soul) and receive everlasting life. It is either death of life for eternity.”

“Always remembering that God did not send his Son to punish or even sentence us with death, but to save us from it.”

“All those who believe what God has given us through His Son, will have eternal life. But, those who do not believe what He has given, will receive divine justice for their sins. This judgement will be because they have refused The Light (Jesus) and have loved darkness more than Light. And, all the while, they practice darkness and despise the Light more and more. They don’t want the Light because they know that it exposes their darkness. And, why would one want to be exposed?”

“By believing in His Son, which provides for us the atonement needed, we get to experience God’s love. It’s not just “hear say”, but living a life of His love.”

“But, those who do not believe in the Son, will not get to experience this eternal life. And, hard to swallow, but true according to His word, will abide under the wrath or anger of God. And we must always be reminded that the “wrath” comes only because of sin. It is easy to forget this. God’s anger is not on the individual who refuses His Son, but on the sin which has yet to be atoned for. Unatoned sin brings forth God’s wrath. If in doubt of this, take some time and read God’s book. From front to back it deals with sin and atonement.”

God bless you with His love!
