I had the privilege of writing an article over at EmilyUrban.com on God’s justice and why God’s justice is good. The subject goes deep and wide and so the article is fairly focused in its message. I hope you enjoy it and it was an honor to write it.
Here is an excerpt:
“God’s glory or the story of redemption in the church tends to focus solely upon God’s work in salvation. Salvation, and the truth of the gospel, are an obvious point to have much joy and love for our God, but in this we miss a vital piece of the puzzle. Not only is God redeeming people, but he is restoring creation from the corruption of the fall. With this comes the simple truth: there is glory for God, and joy for us, in the justice of God expressed in the punishment of sin.”
