The Nature of Wrath
Is it possible for a loving God to show wrath? Perhaps wrath is not what we make it out to be. In this message, Pastor Mike Miller digs into the nature of wrath to reveal that the God-kind of wrath is not the product of anger or disapproval.
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them.
— Romans 1:16-19 (NKJV)
Therefore we make it our aim, whether present or absent, to be well pleasing to Him. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad. Knowing, therefore, the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are well known to God, and I also trust are well known in your consciences.
— 2 Corinthians 5:9-11 (NKJV)
