God loves all that He has created. Although we are bombarded with evil in life, we have a choice in choosing the love of Christ or the love of ourselves. God has proven in His Word how patient and loving and merciful He is. Psalm 103 paints a great picture of God’s love. It even says, “for as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him, as far as the east is from the west, so far he has removed our transgressions from us”. We have free will to choose our path in life. God knows exactly what He created us for and the best possible life, but we can choose our own way. While we are living our own lives, He waits patiently until we decide we need Him. When we choose God, He erases all our past sins and tells us we are wonderful and glorious in His sight.
