“The Lord is compassionate and merciful, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. He will not constantly accuse us, nor remain angry forever. He does not punish us for all our sins; he does not deal harshly with us, as we deserve.” (Psalm 103:8-10; NLT)
- Are we reconciled with God because we live perfectly? No, we are reconciled because of Jesus
- Free from condemnation thanks to Jesus’ finished work on the cross
Thanks to Jesus, God’s wrath and anger were all poured out on the cross. There is no punishment left for us — those who have put their trust in Jesus and His finished work on the cross.
Are you scared of God getting mad at you? Read this beautiful promise in Isaiah 54:9-10:
“‘Just as I swore in the time of Noah that I would never again let a flood cover the earth, so now I swear that I will never again be angry and punish you. For the mountains may move and the hills disappear, but even then my faithful love for you will remain. My covenant of blessing will never be broken,’ says the Lord, who has mercy on you.” (NLT)
Whenever you think God is mad at you, remember this beautiful promise.
