A Deeper Study on God’s Justice

This last weekend we spent some time talking about God’s justice. If you would like to hear the sermon, you can find it here and then come back to meditate on these questions and verses.

Study Questions

  1. Along with punishing sin, what does Biblical justice entail?
  2. Why is it important that God’s justice come from within and not from an outside principle or constraint?
  3. Is God acting justly when He pardons our sin? How?
