Don’t you see how wonderfully kind, tolerant, and patient God is with you? Does this mean nothing to you?
Romans 2:4 (NLT)
Can you imagine if God dealt with us according to our behavior? Who would stand a chance? And yet so many use the wrath of God to motivate us into submission and obedience. Fear works but it doesn’t produce the kind of response God is looking for. He created us to be objects of His love and grace. So Paul asks a very specific question. He asks, “Don’t you see how wonderfully kind, tolerant, and patient God is with you? Does this mean nothing to you?” He was disturbed wondering, how could anyone know the mercy and grace of God and not be motivated to live for God? Paul continues with another question, “Can’t you see that his kindness is intended to turn you from your sin?” It is His grace, His kindness, His tolerance and patience that motivates us to turn from our sin and follow Him. Today, take time to notice. Take time to consider how kind and patient God has been toward you.
Dear Father, forgive me for not focusing on how kind, tolerant and patient You have been with me. Help me Lord to understand Your great kindness toward me so I will turn from my sin and follow You.
