A rediscovery of the gospel begins with a vision of the holiness of God. What does it mean for God to be holy? Why is a “God-entranced vision of all things” crucial for gospel awakening both in our individual lives and in our churches? How should this vision of God’s holiness motivate us in our own personal pursuit of holiness and in helping our churches progress in sanctification?
“Jesus received no help or succor in his death. He suffered under the relentless, unrelieved terrors of divine wrath and fury against sin. God arrived in the blackness at Calvary to bring judgment, not on the ungodly, but on his Son. God brought the outer darkness of hell to Calvary that day as he unleashed the full extent of his wrath against the sins of all who would ever believe in Jesus Christ. Infinite wrath moved by infinite righteousness brought infinite punishment on the eternal Son.”
