Is there something you have seen or heard someone do (maybe you are that someone) and you thought to yourself, “oh my word, that person should never get away with that! I hope punishment rains down on them.”? Truth is we all deserve punishment to rain down on us. We were all born bad, sin made us bad.

BUT let’s read what Paul tells us in Ephesians 2:1-10 (http://bit.ly/2zIf7JB)

Instead of punishment and death raining down – undeserved mercy, kindness, love, grace (favour), salvation rained down. We went from bad to good. And not because of anything we could ever do, but because of EVERYTHING Jesus did.

Look into Psalm 145:8-9 (http://bit.ly/2ltEh4P)

Do you find it tough to be gracious and compassionate? Are you easily frustrated with friends and family? Do your teachers sometimes get to you, to a point where you are unable to act out the “slow to anger” characteristic? Do you find that it’s really hard to love people, just because?

Verse 8 says, “The LORD is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love.” Verse 9 says “He is good to all” – What a brilliant explanation of a major aspect of God’s character! Isn’t it good to know God is compassionate, gracious, is patient with us and loves no matter what!

What about us – P!nk

In P!nk’s song What About Us, she sings about a brokenness and a need for change. The song is asking for a solution to a problem. As Christ-followers we were “problems that wanted to be solved and we were children that needed to be loved”.

Romans 3:23 states how we have all sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God. However, unlike the song, we have a solution (v24) “all are justified freely by His grace through redemption that came by Christ Jesus”. Which will be the sound track to your life? Pain, hurt and confusion like P!nk? Or the healing, love and peace given freely by Christ?

Any WordSpacers out there ever been mad at God? That’s ok! If God is who he says he is, then he’s more than big enough to handle our tantrums.

More good news: you can take your anger to God in prayer. He knows you’re angry, anyway. You may as well pour it all out at his feet – as loud and furious as you like.

Just don’t be surprised if he quiets your anger with his grace. Don’t be surprised if you come away a little awestruck.

‘So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.’ (Hebrews 4v16 – http://bit.ly/1ah6Vq7 )
