Less Than Deserved

Ezra 9:13, 15 – “What has happened to us is a result of our evil deeds and our guilt is great, and yet, our God, You have punished us less than our sins have deserved. O Lord, God of Israel, You are righteous!” (NIV 1978)

My Musing – How can He be righteous if He punishes us less than our sins deserve? Because the price paid by Christ on Calvary made mercy and justice compatible.

My Advice – Never forget that the price Jesus paid on the cross made God’s mercy and grace possible. The price tag was high and our appreciation needs to reflect the cost.
