How God can be just and yet justify the ungodly …

“How God can be just and yet justify the ungodly, how He can condemn sin and yet let the sinner go free, how He can declare and manifest His awful righteousness, and yet be righteous in bestowing life on the guilty, how He can magnify the law and make it honorable, while yet its penalty is not borne by transgressors but by their voluntary substitute, are but a few of the hard problems, which find solution in the cross of Christ. For near a half century I have been hearing and reading good discourses from time to time on this theme, yet it is as fresh and delightful as ever. Oh that I may see into it better before I die, and infinitely better after I die.”
– William S. Plumer
