In the new community of Jesus, curses are to be replaced by blessings, malice by prayer, and revenge by service.

Good Samaritans will always be needed to succor those who are assaulted and robbed; yet it would be even better to rid the Jerusalem-Jericho road of brigands.... Injustice must bring pain to the God whose justice flared brightly at the cross; it should bring pain to God's people too.

Our redemption is a work at once of price and of power--of expiation and of conquest. On the cross was the purchase made, and on the cross was the victory gained. The blood which wipes out the sentence against us was there shed, and the death which was the death-blow of Satan's kingdom was there endured.... It is finished.

It is not easy to decide which is the most luminously revealed, whether the justice of God in judging sin, or the love of God in bearing the judgment in our place, or the wisdom of God in perfectly combining the two, or the power of God in saving those who believe.... The cross assures us that this God is the reality within, behind and beyond the universe.

"The prophet Isaiah pronounced a fierce woe against magistrates who 'aquit the guilty for a bribe, but deny justice to the innocent'... How could God conceivably do such a thing? It was outrageous that the divine Judge should practice what--in the very same Greek words--he had forbidden human judges to do." Namely, justifying the wicked.

The concept of substitution may be said, then, to lie at the heart of both sin and salvation. For the essence of sin is man substituting himself for God, while the essence of salvation is God substituting himself for man. Man asserts himself against God and puts himself where only God deserves to be; God sacrifices himself for man and puts himself where only man deserves to be...

The kind of God who appeals to most people today would be easygoing in his tolerance of our offenses. He would be gentle, kind, accommodating, and would have no violent reactions.... There is much shallowness and levity among us.

Something Stott points out is that in the crucifixion description, the Evangelists only say "then he was crucified." They do not list the gory details. This is very interesting when you consider the predominant focus on the physical suffering present in many sermons today. The point is not the physical, the point is God was reconciling the world to him in Christ.
