Scripture at Sunrise 4.13.2010

“The Lord within her is righteous; he does no injustice; every morning he shows forth his justice; each dawn he does not fail; but the unjust knows no shame.”  -Zephaniah 3:5

“God is loving, but a major part of what He loves is His own perfect character, with a major aspect being the importance of maintaining justice and righteousness. Though God pardons sinners and makes provision for expressing His mercy, He will never negotiate His justice. If we fail to understand that, the cross of Christ will be utterly meaningless to us.”

– R. C. Sproul, The Truth of the Cross (Orlando, FL; Reformation Trust Pub., 2007), 19.
