Romans 3:26 - "To demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has put his faith in Jesus."
God is Just and Holy. Sin must be punished. However, he has made a way in Christ that the debt could be satisfied by Jesus for those who put their faith in Him.
Jesus voluntarily took the place of all who will trust in Him.
