More than just just

I forgave you that tremendous debt because you pleaded with me. Shouldn’t you have mercy on your fellow servant, just as I had mercy on you? Matt. 18:32b-33.

In essence sin means that every single person on earth is in big trouble and none of us can get ourselves out of it.  Propitiation is a big word that means that Jesus has gotten us out of trouble in a way that is both just and merciful. When we are the ones who have been wronged, Christ’s grace has to factor into how we respond to whoever has wronged us.

Thank you, Jesus for merciful justice and just mercy.
