However, as believers, it is important that we also recognize that we are saved precisely because God delays His justice. Whatever age you or I received God's promise of eternal life was more than enough time for God to have caused His just wrath to fall on us.
Dr. Cyril E. M. Joad, who for years was the head of the Philosophy Department at the University of London, probably did more to undermine the faith of the collegiate world of recent generations than almost any other. He believed that God was an impersonal part of the cosmos and that there was no such thing as sin.
However, before he died, Dr. Joad became convinced that the only explanation for sin was found in the Bible---and the only solution for sin was the cross of Jesus Christ. Like the apostle Paul, he became a zealous follower of Jesus. No doubt many of his followers turned to faith in God through his testimony and writings. God's long-suffering and incredible patience brought this skeptic to his knees at the cross.
None of us deserve even one day of life because of our sinful, depraved nature, so we should be grateful for a just God who delays His justice. When it comes to our sin, justice delayed works to our advantage.
Your View of God Really Matters …
The next time you see justice denied because it is delayed, let it be a poignant reminder of how greatly you have benefited because God was slow to enact His justice toward you.
