God Isn’t Angry

  • by

Pastor Dennis Allan walks through two passages in the Gospel of Luke where Jesus is patient, grace-filled, forgiving, and grieved regarding the sin of His people. In these two passages we begin to discover we aren’t haunted by an angry God; we’re pursued by a God of love. Jesus weeps over Jerusalem and prays for the people who crucify Him. Yet, for many Christians, we think of God as angry, almost gleeful in His punishment of sinners, especially the sinners whose lifestyles we dislike. And yet, in Jesus, we see the embodiment of a God who grieves sin and is patient with His people, offering space and time for people to turn away from sin and turn toward Him.
