And when they came to the place which is called The Skull [Latin: Calvary; Hebrew: Golgotha], there they crucified Him, and [along with] the criminals, one on the right and one on the left. Luke 23:33 (AMPC)
At that hill Calvary God settled the accounts.
There God declared and proved Himself just while He justified man. A Just, Righteous, and Holy God judged and condemned sin while at the same time the same God who is loving, gracious and merciful poured out forgiveness of sins, freed, cleansed and made us righteous and holy.
There God fully displayed His unconditional Love, Grace, and Mercy while not compromising but rather upholding His Righteousness, Justice and Holiness.
In Christ’s death on the Cross at Calvary this is what happened:
Mercy and truth met together; Righteousness and peace kissed. Truth sprang out of the earth, And righteousness looked down from heaven. Psalms 85:10-11(NKJV)
The NLT Bible says of the same Scripture – Unfailing love and truth met together. Righteousness and peace kissed! Truth sprang up from the earth, and righteousness smiled down from heaven.
Because of the blood that was shed at Calvary’s Cross the justice, righteousness, Holiness and at the same time the love, Grace, Mercy and goodness of God have been shed into and over our lives, they are for us for our good.
