God's Character of Love
In Romans He is gracious and faithful. In Psalms He is good, everlasting mercy, enduring truth, just, and righteous wrath.
Jesus and Him Crucified
In Romans, Paul says Christ sent him to "preach the gospel, not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of no effect. For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to those who are being saved it is the power of God." He also says, "we preach Christ cruicified...to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God." "Of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God and righteousness and sanctification and redemption..." The psalmist says, "I will sing of mercy and justice; to You..." Mercy and justice met on the cross of Jesus Christ.
Verse(s) that speak to me today

Preach Jesus and Him crucified and set nothing wicked before your eyes.
