It should make us so thankful for God and His goodness that we begin to fear sinning against Him. Every sin that gets wiped away is another reason to never sin again. Think how good God is to keep on forgiving, over and over again. For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is His mercy toward those who fear Him; as far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us.
God is also the God of patience. He waits for us. He is longsuffering.
It would be entirely right and just to send us all to death for sinning and going against His perfect plan for creation. But God has given us a gift, an undeserved way back to Him. Through Jesus Christ we can attain divine nature and live in eternity together with Him in harmony. We all have to admit that our progress is often slow, with many setbacks. But God never gives up as long as we have the mind and heart to serve Him.
The work He has started in us will be completed. No matter how long it takes. Philippians Psalm ; Isaiah God is love. He is patient. He is righteous. And He is also wrath. His wrath is not over people but over sin. Because His love for people is so deep, He must necessarily hate everything that harms His creation with a hatred that runs just as deeply as His love. They are two sides of the same coin. God hates sin because He knows how damaging it is.
He sees sin hurt and corrupt and destroy His perfect creation time and time again. He understands all the pain and suffering that is caused because of it.

God wants to get rid of sin, utterly and thoroughly. But right now is the time of grace; a time where God has chosen to let people separate themselves from their sin.
God in Our Midst: The Tabernacle and Our Relationship with God
He is letting people make the decision to serve Him instead of their sin. It is a time to make use of the immense power of the wrath of God and cleanse out all of the sin that dwells in you. Let it burn through you like a fire. How dare Satan corrupt this perfect creation! How dare he lead people into quarrelling, impatience, lying, anxiety, sexual immorality and all those other sins that cause so much damage to people and relationships!
How dare he start wars and plagues and famines and terrorist attacks and everything else he does! If you feel that burning hatred against sin seething within you, just imagine how God feels, who understands far more than we could ever think or feel.

But neither is it something to be feared. He is also abundantly patient and merciful for the souls who long to be pleasing to Him. God will look kindly on them. But neither can we let ourselves be deceived or take advantage of this. We need to use this time to become free from sin. There will come a day when the time of grace is over and God will reach out His hand and end sin forever. And whoever chooses to cling tightly to their sins will be destroyed along with it. Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the Lord, The Creator of the ends of the earth, neither faints nor is weary.
His understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the weak, And to those who have no might He increases strength. God can do everything. He created the heavens and the earth with a word. He breathed life into Adam and made mankind. He created the wind and the water, stars and planets, He created the entire universe. He is capable of doing anything He wants. He has the power to forgive sins and to raise people up from the dead. And more than this, He has the power to keep people from sinning and to lead them to a victorious life in Christ. John There is no sinner who is too wretched for Him to save, nor any sin that is too deep for Him to forgive.
The Spirit flows through your heart, mind and body and gives you complete power to cease from sin. This power is far greater than sin. Just surrender completely to God, obey Him, and let His might make you utterly free. What is God like? God is not subject to the fluctuating whims and opinions of a flawed and degraded society.
Bible Verses About Hope: Staying Positive In The Midst Of Hardship
His laws and His love and His ways are the same today as they were when He created the earth. And they will continue on into eternity forever. The moral commandments that God gave to the Hebrew people thousands of years ago are the same laws He expects us to follow today. And they are the same laws He expects us to live by in all of eternity. God is final.
