A Blood-Splattered Platform
When the Holy God and a ruined sinner meet on a blood-splattered platform, all is settled once and for all, settled in such a way as to perfectly honor and glorify God and eternally save the sinner.
The only proper meeting place between God and man is the point where grace and righteousness meet and perfectly harmonize.
Nothing but perfect righteousness could suit God, and nothing but perfect grace could suit the sinner.
But where could that take place?
Only in the cross.
There it is that mercy and truth are met together, and there the believing sinner finds peace for the heart and conscience.
