In wondrous contrast — and yet with consistent harmony!
In the floral kingdom, the flowers have many hues. A number of different colored flowers in a bouquet will enhance the beauty of each other by their contrast.
Just so, in the cross of Christ, the attributes of God are brought out in wondrous contrast — and yet with consistent harmony. There we see . . .
His name glorified,
His love manifested,
His majesty upheld,
His justice satisfied,
His truth vindicated,
His law magnified, and
His righteousness displayed in the putting away of our sins!
"He did it to demonstrate His justice at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus." Romans 3:26
"Love and faithfulness meet together; righteousness and peace kiss each other!" Psalm 85:10
