" ... O God of our salvation, For the glory of Your name ... provide atonement for our sins, For Your name’s sake!" (Psalm 79:9).
Beyond our salvation, there is God's glory. When we think about
Christ's atoning sacrifice for sin, we must not think only of the "for
us" blessing - the forgiveness of our sins. We must also think of the
"for God" character of the atonement which has been provided for us by
God. We rejoice in the forgiveness of our sins. We also rejoice in
this: God's holiness is proclaimed in the death of Christ for sinners.
We may think first of the blessing that has come to us through the the
shedding of Christ's precious blood. Scripture speaks first of the "for
God" character of the atonement - God is "just" - before speaking of
the "for us" blessing - God is "the justifier of the one who has faith
in Jesus" (Romans 3:26).
