Edwards: Justice Demands Adoption

“The redemption by Christ is particularly wonderful upon this acount, inasmuch as the justice of God is not only appeased to those who have an interest in him, but stands up for them; is not only not an enemy but a friend, every whit as much as mercy. Justice demands adoption and glorification, and importunes as much for it, as ever it did before for misery; in every respect
that it is against the wicked, it is as much for the godly.”

-Jonathan Edwards, Miscellanies, as recorded by Owen Strachan, Always in God’s Hands: Day by Day in the Company of Jonathan Edwards, 303.
