My loving God angry? What’s up with that…

Salvation  |  November 17

You marched through the land in indignation; you trampled the nations in anger.
You went forth for the salvation of Your people, for salvation with Your Anointed…

Habakkuk 3:12-13

Father, we know that in the end, your righteous indignation with those who did not accept You nor Your Son, is promised. We do not know the specifics of their fate but we do not need to know. All we need to do Father is to be among those who are saved, whose salvation is assured.

You are a God of justice and mercy. Father, we know any punishment for sin is justified and we know that Your mercy is our only hope. None of us are justified in Your sight except as You look at us through the cleansing act of Jesus.

Help us today to realize that our relationship with You is based upon our faith in Jesus and our obedience to Your law. The order is never different than “grace, mercy, faith and obedience” and that sequence can never be reversed.

Our obedience earns us nothing without faith and our faith follows our grasping of Your extended, merciful hand. We are grateful for Your grace and mercy leading us to faithfulness and good works. In Jesus’ Holy name, we pray, amen.
