Comparing Two Attributes of God

I posed this question to the students at a recent Wednesday night service.

The culture that we live in today loves to talk about how God is Love. While this is not untrue, it seems unfair to label such a figure by only one of His attributes. 

The least talked about attribute amongst the world not talked about is God being a "just" God.

Question: How can God satisfy both of these attributes of love and justness without contradicting the two?

You are absolutely correct, and what's more is that Love and Just cannot be separated in listing His attributes.

Because God is a just God He has to punish that which makes us sinners. He is perfect and we are not.
And Because God is a loving God He has chosen to provide a way for us to be viewed as perfect before Him.

This is an amazing thing that a perfect Loving and Just God would give His perfect, one and only son as a substitute for an imperfect world.

So He is JUST in the punishment for sin, and LOVING for providing salvation from that sin.
