Apt words from Leon Morris in his work, The Apostolic Preaching of the Cross:

In the last resort forgiveness is always due to God’s being what he is, and not to anything that man may do.  Because God is God, he must react in the strongest manner to man’s sin, and thus we reach the concept of the divine wrath.  But because God is God, wrath cannot be the last word.  “The Lord is good; his mercy endureth forever’ (Ps. 100:5),” (pg. 154).

Ah yes, grace is getting what we don’t deserve.  His wrath we do deserve.  Our culture (and sometimes our churches) mix that up.

Thankfully God is God and His mercy is the last word.
