5/22 Wrath

Rom 5:9 Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him!

Wrath is a heavy word. Let’s look at this first. It means a retributory punishment for an offense or a crime. Think about this, that he was going to punish you severely. Could you handle his wrath? Could you live with knowing that the moment you died, you would be in his hands for punishment?

Dwell on this. Really think about this. Put yourself in that place. On your death bed knowing when you blink out, you will receive harm and punishment. Can you bear this?

This is of first importance to see. This is that you may appreciate what he has given you in Jesus. Because of what Jesus did, for the love of the father, you are reprieved. You put trust in him and gave him your life as a servant and slave. As a result he calls you son or daughter.

You are free of guilt and the corresponding punishment.

Thank him and embrace your forgiveness. Accept the title of son or daughter. Live in this, that he purchased you with the blood of his son. And this for you to be in his service. Go to work!
