Is God Mad at Us?

We come this morning to the last attribute and perhaps the toughest attributes to talk about. This is that attribute of God that some Christians feel like they have to apologize for. There might even be someone here who is a bit embarrassed their pastor is talking about this out loud. God’s wrath certainly isn’t an attribute that we think should be cause for worship, something we should thank God for and praise Him for. This attribute is closely related to several other of God’s attributes such as God’s righteousness, God’s holiness, God’s jealousy, God’s justice. I think it will help us get a handle of this attribute if I approach it through a brief consideration of God’s jealousy and God’s justice. This will give us a better context for understanding God’s wrath.
