God's justice was completely satisfied with the substitution of Christ. He is now free to express Himself in blessing man without any notion of sin. For those of us who have accepted Jesus as our Savior have received Him as our life, God no longer considers us as imperfect or undeserving. Now we are under grace ... God is free to deal with us on the basis (not on who we are or on what we deserve but on who Christ is and on what He has done) of what happened at the cross. There is now no condemnation, no consciousness of sin or fear of impending judgment. (Dr Shawn Smith, In Christ Devotions, July)
