If you find yourself shocked by the anger and violence of God, know how God is appalled even more by the evil of idolatry, which enrages God’s heart. No, you might not adore an idol of plaster of Paris, yet it is easy to be tempted to place the center of preference in some project, some plan, and some thing as empty as a cheap idol, in place of God.
The day of trouble has come: Good Friday. The Easter season is one continuous day of salvation. For those who resist God’s plan in their lives, there are not enough physical or emotional anesthesias to ward off the pain.
Be sobered by the verse for the day. Remember “the bottom line.” God is forgiving. Yet God wants your heart now, not postponed until later. God’s anger is short; God’s love is everlasting—but this life is not! Repent now and live.
Mondays are dedicated to the reading of the Hebrew Prophets.
In the season of Easter we read Ezekiel 1—16.
