GOD, TIlE JUST ONE - By Robert E. Hanna

By Robert E. Hanna

Scripture Reading: Deuteronomy 32:1-4

"He is the Rock, His work is perfect: for all His ways are  judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity,just and right  is He." How inconceivable to our finite reasoning is the  vicarious work of the only just being ever to exist! "For Christ  also hath once suffered for sins, thejustfor the unjust, that He  rnight bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but  quickened by the Spirit" (I Peter 3:18). The beloved old song  of faith comes to mind as we ponder this wonder, "Why should  He love me so? Why should He love me so? Why should my  Savior to Calvary go? Why should He love me so?"

When God saved His enemy, Saul, as he was making  havoc of the churches, the chief rebel was informed by the  respected Jew, Ananias, "The God of our fathers hath chosen  thee, that thou shouldest know His will, and see that Just One,  and shouldest hear the voice of His mouth. For thou shalt be  His witness unto all men of what thou hast seen and heard"  (Acts 22:14, 15). The Just One would be speaking to Paul from  heaven as He had suffered the death of crucifixion, been  buried and had risen to ascend to sit at the right hand of the  Father.

Those responsible for the cruel slaying of the Son of God  were roundly censored for their act by the Apostle Peter. "Ye  denied the Holy One and the Just, and desired a murderer be  granted unto you; and killed the Prince oflife, whom God hath  raised from the dead" (Acts 3:14,15). How thankful we should  be for this unspeakable gift, "Being justified freely by His  grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus!"  (Romans 3:24).
