There are so many things that I could relate to you that express the true benevolence of a righteous God, of a loving Savior. God’s ways are without question and His demands are without reproach. The only sorrow of God is the sorrow He shows for our lack of understanding and for our disobedience. He does not error or do those things that are worthy of repentance. As the Bible states, God cannot sin (Hebrews 4:15). The shortest verse in the Bible, John 11:35, “Jesus wept”, reveals His ardent passion and His undying love and devotion for all His children. Jesus took our sins upon the cross but in taking our sins He was not a partaker in those sins, He was only the holy sacrifice. The righteous became the cost; the unspotted became the sacrifice, what better example of love or what deeper expression of devotion? The total perfection of God was not spoiled by His surrender; it was only made available for our deliverance. If God were to give up His total perfection, He would be no better than His creation and we would be without a way of escape. The lost cannot save the lost and the sinner cannot justify his own sin (Psalm 1:6). God will never be drawn down to our level; we must be lifted up to His. In evil there is no triumph, only defeat; while in victory there is no sorrow, only celebration.
