Magnificent anger, eternal pain, unimaginable love.

God’s anger is pure and good, and it reaches like a flood into every last corner of evil and injustice in His world.  I do not need to contemplate my own, muddy anger, but to let myself be caught up into His magnificent anger.

I can do this because, along with His magnificent anger goes His eternal pain – His anguish over the pain experienced by His fallen creation (Genesis 6:6 reflects 3:16 and 3:17).

And greater than both is His unimaginable love, which commits Him to this mixed-up world from the rainbow covenant of Noah to the Cross of Messiah Jesus.
