Wrath and Love

One person might ask whether the Cross was a work of God’s love or of His wrath.

Another might thoughtfully respond that it is not a question of either/or, but of both/and. The Cross demonstrates God’s wrath and His love.

But even such a revelation doesn’t go far enough. We need to ask what are the objects of God’s affections?

Was God ever angry at you or me? Or, was His anger and wrath poured out on the sins that consumed and bewitched us? Can we say with confidence that the demonstration of His love at the Cross from for all of humanity and the demonstration of His wrath was against anything or anyone who would try to separate us from His love (including ourselves)?
