Jesus would rather be called upon to show His mercy and forgiveness to the repentant heart than to have to punish man for their iniquity. Just as a father or mother would rather their child obey them than having to punish them and being made to suffer the consequence of their disobedience. Choose LIFE; choose what is RIGHT; choose to listen to that soft voice in your mind that tells your conscience when something you’re thinking about, saying or doing is wrong. THAT VOICE is the voice of JESUS, the voice of TRUTH, the voice of wisdom and perfect counsel. LISTEN to JESUS; He wants to have an intimate relationship with you, to cradle you in His loving arms, to restore your soul with HIS LOVE. The more time you spend with Him, the more you will FALL in love with JESUS, with all of your heart, mind, and soul. Jesus created you to love Him and He came to REDEEM YOUR SOUL from having to suffer the eternal consequence of your sins. REPENT of your sins and JESUS will pour out His wisdom upon your soul to give you the perfect counsel to OVERCOME wicked desires of the flesh and of the wicked heart. HE will give you HIS undefiled heart, as the motivation to strive through the valley of death!!
JESUS is faithful, merciful and forgiving. Yet MOST hate Him and will choose death.
