Justified by an “unjust” act

The cross.

We were justified (made right before God) by the most unjust act in history: crucifying the Son of God.

Think about it.

From our point of view, it is totally unfair for a perfect man to die. Yet God allowed that seemingly unfair act to orchestrate the most amazing work ever: our salvation.

It’s awesome.

(I’d been thinking about that idea for a few days and then I saw a post about it on a blog a couple of days ago. That prompted me to post here.)
