Scripture:  2Chronicles (NIV) 36:15 The LORD, the God of their fathers, sent word to them through his messengers again and again, because he had pity on his people and on his dwelling-place. 16 But they mocked God's messengers, despised his words and scoffed at his prophets until the wrath of the LORD was aroused against his people and there was no remedy.

Observation:   God's 'pity'motivated Him to reach out to them 'again and again.'  But God was continually rejected and eventuallyhis 'pity' turned to 'wrath!'  What sadwords: 'there was no remedy!'  When theHoly God is angry, His wrath is always holy. It is justly deserved.  Thoseunder judgment cannot complain.  Their Judgeis Holy.  Their judgment is just. 

Application:  This should not be hard for us tounderstand.  Most of us have seen orheard of stories of rejected love turning to wrath. 

When God sent His own dearly loved Son to die for our sins, we should not besurprised that He gets angry when His Son is rejected by man!  If He did not get angry, we might think thatHe did not love His Son very much. ???

Prayer:  Heavenly Father, how amazing is your Son whowillingly left His throne in heaven to die on a cruel cross for my sins.  I owe Him my all.  He is my Lord!    Amen
