The Vindication of God
A Sermon on Romans 3:25-26
whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith. This was to show God's righteousness, because in his divine forbearance he had passed over former sins. It was to show his righteousness at the present time, so that he might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus. (ESV)
The reconciliation of eternal love and eternal justice; remission and pretermission; previous forbearance; sin actually seen to be punished; the cross declaring God's love and justice.
