The Goodness and the Severity of God

Posted by Pastor Frank Humphrey on

Romans 11:22 - Consider both the goodness and the severity of God.


This text tells us to think and reflect upon two aspects of God's dealings

towards humans. We like to think about divine goodness and ignore the

severity part. Yet both these aspects are found in John 3:16 - For God so

loved the world that he gave his only son, that whoever believes in him

should not perish but have everlasting life.


Note the contrast between love and perish. Perish is the severity of God.

Jesus Christ paid the penalty for our sins on the cross and delivers us from

the wrath to come. (1Thessalonians 1) The gospel of Christ deals with the

most important issue we can face in this life.


Make the right choice!
