Saving Ironies

"Because of the collision of God's justice-in the setting to rights of all that is broken and the judgment of wrath poured out for disobedience-and God's mercy-in the substitution of His Son for the deserving enemies He loves, the cross is a thermonuclear explosion of saving ironies. In dying, He kills sin. In captivity, He is victorious. In exposure, He is exalted. In this end is the beginning.
He lives a short life and dies that we might die a short while and live."
~Jared Wilson
