Wrath. Now there’s a scary word – especially if it’s God we’re talking about… Uncontrolled fury, random acts of anger and destruction. That’s not what God is supposed to be like right?
What if we imagined God’s ‘wrath’ as a controlled, steady, relentless opposition towards everything that’s unjust or evil? Might make a bit more sense?
What if God saw US as unjust and evil and deserving of his wrath? Very scary thought!
What if Jesus knew that he would face God’s wrath for all of us – instead of us – for three hours on the cross? That was so scary Jesus begged God to not let that happen (Mark 14v35-36).
It did. On the cross Jesus experienced and saved us from God’s wrath. It’s done, finished.
