TOLLE LEGE

THE GOSPEL AND THE CROSS

“Justification is first and foremost about the vindication of God.  God simultaneously preserves his justice while justifying the ungodly.  That is the heart of the gospel … Do you want to see the greatest evidence of the love of God?  Go to the cross.  Do you want to see the greatest evidence of the justice of God?  Go to the cross.  It is where wrath and mercy meet.  Holiness and peace kiss each other.  The climax of redemptive history is the cross.”

– D.A. Carson, Scandalous (Wheaton: Crossway Books, 67, 70)
