John 5:20-23 | Matthew 21:12-13

 

“How can they get away with that?” is one of the most asked questions in all of Christianity, if not the world. We all like to hear stories about how people are shown mercy and forgiveness when they clearly didn’t deserve it. Just as much, we like to hear stories where justice is served and the antagonist “gets what he deserves.”

The church likes to focus on the love and mercy of Jesus and we should. Yet, we often find ourselves grimacing when anything is said about the judgement of Jesus. The beautiful thing about Christ is that you don’t get one without the other. At times it may seem that evil runs rampant. But, the day will come when Christ will stand at the threshold of time and eternity and will say, “Enough.”
