Wonderful Savior Thank you Pastor for beautiful phrases like these. 'Even the Lord Jesus could not forgive any single sin by some hand waving, or by the power of His will. The righteousness of God must be satisfied for every sin, But our God also delights in mercy. The only possible way by which the righteous Judge can both enforce the requirements of the Law, and yet show mercy to an offender of the Law, is by a third party offering to pay the penalty which the convicted one deserves. That is what Christ did on the cross.' Thank you Lord for this incomprehensible sacrifice.
