Jesus didn't have to do what he did. He could have easily come down from the cross and hurled lightning bolts at the entire Sanhedrin. Yet he chose not to.
At any time, God could wipe us out and start over with a species that actually does what it is told. Yet he chooses not to.
After all the damage and suffering we have caused, frequently citing his holy name as justification... yet he still loves us and wants us to be in heaven with him.
I don't understand it. But I am grateful for it.
