How Do You See God?
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort” (2 Corinthians 1:3, NKJV).
Too many times we see God as mean and full of wrath, but we forget that all of God’s wrath toward us is gone. He unleashed it on Jesus on the Cross. All our debt and sin has been paid in full at the cross.
We forget that God is a God of love, of all comfort and mercy.
We think of God as angry. He is not angry with us. Not us who believe. Not us who are covered by the blood of Jesus.
No, we are righteous because of Jesus. He is our Sacrifice…and if you look it up in the Old Testament, you find that the priest never looked at the sinner only the sacrifice.
Today, God doesn’t look at our sins but at the Sacrifice for those sins. Is He good enough? Yes.
He took God’s wrath, so that we can see God no longer as mean and full of wrath but as our loving Heavenly Father.
Make a conscious effort to see God as Father today.
