God Is Not Mad at You; He’s Madly in Love With You
Because religion has misrepresented God, many people see God as mean and intolerant. They have a distorted picture of Him. That is not the God of the Bible. God is not out to punish you. He is a good God.. The cross was a rescue mission. God sent Jesus to save the world, not to condemn it.
The Bible is not a book of rules. It is a love story written by a God who is love. Love is the driving force behind everything He does. He has every intention of doing good things for you. Because God is love, He wants you to live a rich and satisfying life. The gospel is good news. God is not mad at you; He’s madly in love with you and wants to have a relationship with you.
