DAY 19
GOD IS WRATHFUL TOWARDS SIN
God intensely hates and responds with anger to all sin and rebellion. God’s wrath in the Bible is never the capricious, self-indulgent, irritable, morally ignoble thing that human anger so often is. It is, instead, a right and necessary reaction to objective moral evil. God hates every threat to what he loves. The God who loves us is also the holy God who hates sin. God’s wrath is his love in action against sin. Divine wrath is God’s righteous anger and punishment, provoked by sin. In the case of those who repent and trust Christ, God’s wrath against sin is satisfied because the just punishment fell on Christ at the cross and will not fall on us. God’s wrath was propitiated in Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross. His wrath will eventually consume those who reject Jesus and continue in their sin.
