Bible Nuggets – God created man, man offended God

God created man, man offended God, yet God took the first initiative to reconcile with man. And even after God tried to reconcile, man ran away. Romans 2:4b says "the goodness(kindness) of God led man into repentance". God chased after man, and even had to show up on earth in a physical form….. just to bring man into repentance.

In a marriage relationship where a husband unintentinally offends his wife or a wife unintentionally offends her husband, the person that takes the first initiative towards reconciliation should be the more spiritual of the two. But these days, Christian husbands and Christian wives tell us they are both very very spiritual, and yet divorce is becoming a normal status-quo.

Shouldn’t these sons and daughters of God be actually running into each others arms 24/7 even after offending each other? If their claim of spirituality is true, if their union was founded on the Rock of Ages, why has their individual "I do’s", which was proclaimed in the presence of God, man and many witnesses become "We don’t" – in a court of law?

Just a thought!
