Apologetics to the Glory of God

Is That Justice?

A guilty man set free on the account of another.

Is that justice?

Oh, to ponder that wondrous work on the cross.

Some Doctrinal resources from Dr. Wayne Grudem’s Systematic Theology Lectures:

A Hymn for reflection:

1 Alas! and did my Savior bleed!
And did my Sovereign die?
Would he devote that sacred head
For such a worm as I?

[2 Thy body slain sweet Jesus thine,
And bathed in its own blood,
While all exposed to wrath divine
The glorious Sufferer stood!]

3 Was it for crimes that I had done
He groaned upon the tree?
Amazing pity! Grace unknown!
And love beyond degree!

4 Well might the sun in darkness hide,
And shut his glories in,
When God the mighty Maker, died
For man the creature’s sin.

5 Thus might I hide my blushing face,
While his dear cross appears;
Dissolve my heart in thankfulness,
And melt my eyes to tears.

6 But drops of grief can ne’er repay
The debt of love we owe;
Here, Lord, I give my self away;
‘Tis all that I can do. [1]

[1] Alas, and did my Savior bleed – Isaac Watts – 1707
