Today we are talking about the justice of God using Romans 1:20 as our spring board.
For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities–his eternal power and divine nature–have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.
Justice is one of the invisible qualities of God as described by A.W. Tozer in his book The Attributes of God.
I don’t think there is a better time to address this characteristic of God’s justice than as we begin Holy Week.
So just what is God’s justice?
We see the justice of God written into the very fabric of the universe. Newton’s third law teaches us that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. That is justice. You reap what you sew.If you put garbage in you get garbage out. We get that in every other area of life. Why do we think it is different in the area of spirituality? God is just. Our only hope is that God’s character of mercy will work alongside His character of justice and that is the glory of the cross. God’s justice was satisfied in the mercy of Christ’s cross.
