Judgment and Love

 Christ is our Passover Lamb – He is our Passover, sacrificed for us – 1 Corinthians 5:7.  By shedding His blood on the cross, Jesus turned away the angel of death and rescued us from the wrath of God.

And so, by dying on the cross, the wrath of God, the justice of God, the glory of God, was fully and completely revealed, in fearful glory – but the love of God, the compassion of God, the mercy of God, the gracious glory of God was also revealed in all its fullness.

At this Table we celebrate both.  We do not come and partake from a tame God – but a God hot with jealousy for His holiness and overflowing with love for you – for us – for the bride of Christ, His church.  Come and partake of this hot jealousy, this overflowing love – for you.  Amen.
