• Waiting for Justice Devotional

    Psalm 137

    John Calvin comments on Psalm 137:9 that “it may seem to savor of cruelty … but [the psalmist] does not speak under the impulse of personal feeling, and only employs words which God had himself authorized, so that this is but the declaration of a just judgment.” Sin is so serious that it must be repaid in kind. Thanks be to God, the atonement of Jesus accomplished this for us. Bearing the Lord’s righteous wrath, Christ exhausted the divine curse on our sin and secured blessing for us. View Resource
