God was grieved and pained over the action of people. He is still grieved by the sinful choices of men today. What does this tell us about God’s most freeing choice? That He cares for all of us. Only a God who cares for His creation could be grieved by their disobedience. If He didn’t grieve then He wouldn’t care. We have an amazing God who cares for His creation.
It is easy to believe we fully understand some of the basic doctrines of our Christian faith. But when we truly dive into them, we realize they are much deeper than we thought. Grace is one such doctrine whose well truly has no bottom.
The good news is as born again believers we have hope of eternal life through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. It is this same hope that should motivate us to share the redemptive work of Christ to all those who are unbelievers.
