It can be, because that is Who He is. Holy and merciful. Demanding and providing. Judging and full of grace. He has every right to judge, and so He does. But then in His compassion He provides the sacrifice. He pays the price. And He calls me His daughter, His heir, His beloved, His bride. WOW! Wretch that I am, He holds me in His arms.
How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! 1 John 3:1
"Wherever you are spiritually whatever you have been through emotionally, you
are already wrapped in the Lord's embrace. Held close by nail-scarred hands."
How could I say no to such grace? How can anyone? Why would you say no when the embrace is already there?
