Today, the guys consider the justice of God – which, for Christians, is one of the sweetest things imaginable. The reality of Christianity can be validated in all that the Apostles endured for the sake of Christ. It is the justice of God which allows His believers to rest after all they have been through. A Biblical understanding of justice is that God acts right, always. This means we never have to question His actions or His plan. He rights all wrongs, and we can find comfort in knowing the evil done unto us will not go unpunished. As Christians, God calls on us to be the same.
Using the natural is a good way to help people understand the spiritual. When we find ourselves asking how God can create something as evil as Hell, we must instead remind ourselves that there must be retribution for such worldly evils. Every single thing will be perfectly dealt with, perfectly, in the perfect justice of God. Those of us who have experienced such worldly suffering will find comfort that those debts will be fulfilled. We see the justice of God perfectly illustrated in the cross of Calvary. We want a God of wrath and justice who deals with sin in the ways it should be dealt with. Ultimately, justice is the vehicle which delivers the wrath of God. We have the choice of taking God’s hand in mercy, though if we don’t, we can’t deliver ourselves from His justice.
Contrary to popular opinion, with God there is no such thing as mere forgiveness, there is only justice. God’s justness is a launching pad for believers and non believers alike to understand and long for the reality of the Gospel. We all long for the glory of God to manifest itself on earth, though self righteousness and pride prevent us from realizing that the things we hate most about the world are the very things we find inside of ourselves. To long for heaven is to recognize that we too are sitting on the judgment seat. The desire for justice separates man from beast. When we understand that we too are part of the problem and are deserving of the wrath of God, we realize we are free from it because God himself paid it on His behalf.
