God disciplines those he loves through punishment, but his purpose is restoration and he will not allow the punishment to last forever. God loved Israel enough to restore them. God loves us enough to draw us back when we wander into sin. The ultimate expression of God’s love for us is the person of Jesus Christ, who took our deserved punishment upon himself.
This is the first message in the 3-part series Three Words from the Prophets.
