the courtroom

It occurred to me that picturing a courtroom is a good way to capture much about the Lord and our relationship with Him.  He is the Prosecuting Attorney who makes the case that we are guilty.  He is also the Defense Attorney, who intercedes on our behalf.  He is the Judge who upholds the law and rightly evaluates our case and the Jury who decides our guilt or innocence.  He is the Audience who witnesses my case as well.  He is also the One who accepts the Sentence on my behalf.  He is absolutely Holy when I am absolutely not and fulfills the requirement for righteousness while making provision for my restoration.  He is the entire Courtroom.
Romans 4:23-25 And when God counted him as righteous, it wasn't just for Abraham's benefit.  It was recorded for our benefit, too, assuring us that God will also count us as righteous if we believe in him, the one who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead.  He was handed over to die because of our sins, and he was raised to life to make us right with God.
blessings and may all the guilty find their innocence declared in Jesus!
