How Should We Understand the Wrath of God?

From the Show

What is the balance between being grace centered and letting people get away with sin?

The way we tend to think of grace and repentance is like a seesaw. You put repentance on the side of works and grace on the other side; when one goes up the other goes down. How do you keep the balance? No, no, no. Romans 2:4, “it is the grace and kindness of God that leads you to repentance.” In the same way, if you're not repentant, then that is evidence that God's grace isn't there. To be an unrepentant person who celebrates God's grace is an oxymoron. A person who really revels in God's grace is going to thank him for the grace of repentance, as well as the grace of faith.  — Michael Horton​​​​​
