Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord GOD: and not that he should return from his ways, and live? Ezekiel 18:23
“I’ve heard a thousand stories of what they think you’re like….”
Chris Tomlin penned this from Jesus’ heart.
Jesus knew what the Father was really like.
And He nailed it.
For God So Loved the World that He sent the ANSWER before we could even question.
He is not willing that ANY should perish, but that All come to the knowledge of Him.
He actually demonstrated, not just preached love, by Giving His Best Gift, up front.
For the whole world.
Repentance is a change of course.
It’s starts with what you believe about Jesus.
Do you believe He brought to pass the Father’s heart for you by dying in your place?
What you’ve thought about Him, if it’s not that He loves you more than you can fathom, is wrong.
This is the truth.
He loves you.
He loves your family.
He doesn’t want any to perish.
He wants you to live.
Believe that Jesus is enough.
He overpaid your debt.
The wages of sin is death.
Jesus paid your bill.
Receive His full Payment today.
It’s not about you modifying behavior so that you’re good enough.
That’s, you making a payment.
The payment can’t be made twice.
When you receive Him, He comes to live in you, and through you, by His Word.
You’ll grow more and more into His image as you behold Him through His letter to you, the Bible.
Then you Become all that you were made to be:
A child of the MOST HIGH GOD:
Dearly loved and prized by The Father.
Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see hisseed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand. Isaiah 53:10
We are His Pleasure.
They are His pleasure.
Does that Answer your question?
