Daily Devotion

“The Lord is slow to anger and great in power, and the Lord will by no means clear the guilty. His way is in whirlwind and storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet.” (Nahum 1:3, ESV)

To say there is no hell is to portray God with eyes blind to the hunger and evil in the world. To say there is no hell is to say that God doesn’t care that people are beaten and massacred, that He doesn’t care that women are raped or families wrecked. To say there is no hell is to say God has no justice, no sense of right and wrong, and ultimately to say God has no love. For true love hates what is evil. God deals with wickedness now, and He will deal with it later.

Prayer: Lord, your grace is infinite and so is your wrath.
