GOD'S HIGHEST GLORY
A preacher may have some understanding of certain aspects of God's character, and he may even preach the truth about these particular attributes of God. However, until he understands and preaches the particulars revealing how God justifies the ungodly based on the blood and righteousness of Christ he cannot and has not properly identified the God of salvation, a just God and a Savior.
In salvation by His grace through the Lord Jesus Christ, God reveals how every attribute of His holy character is honored and magnified. This can only be in the salvation of sinners conditioned on Christ alone. This is God's redemptive character and redemptive glory. It is God's highest glory, the greatest revelation of Himself, and it can only be found in Christ crucified and risen again for His people.
