As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.
Jesus tells a story of some very evil tenants who are the enemies of the master of their land. In this story we see the story of God’s redemption. We are like the tenants who rob their master and murder his son. We also know that God is just and He must punish injustice.
God Is Satisfied – God Gives A Substitute
God is holy and just. Everything He does is right and good. In His holiness and justice, He must punish injustice. His righteous wrath (anger against sin) must be satisfied. Sin and rebellion cannot be ignored or looked over. It must be dealt with, and we as guilty sinners deserve God’s wrath to be poured out on us. Thankfully, God, in His mercy, chose to forgive us. The only way He could do this was by punishing Jesus in our place. He sent His Son to be a substitute for our sin in order to rescue us. Jesus bore the punishment that we deserve.
