Where’s the sentencing?

Man’s sin deserves wrath. It makes no sense that God would choose not to swiftly bring justice on us for our sinfulness.

In man’s own justice system, a guilty verdict brings an immediate sentencing.

In God’s justice system, we have already been found guilty but God has chosen to delay the sentencing.

Why?

In order to give us time to repent and acknowledge our guilt and fall on the mercy of the court. Then, when we plead – “Guilty as charged” – God Himself through the incarnation of Jesus Christ pays the penalty for us – what exceptional, awe-inspiring grace!
