HAVING REGRETS

God’s Own Regret

 

Genesis 6:6

 

And the Lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and it grieved Him to His heart.

 

 

LESSON

 

God was sorry that He had made humankind because people generally did not want a relationship with God. They insisted on living life independent of God and consequently destroying themselves in sin. He was sorry over what His special creation had become.

God is no robot. We know him as a personal, living God, not a static principle, who while having transcendent purposes to be sure also engages intimately with his creation. Our God is incomparably affected by, even pained by, the sinner’s rebellion.

I sometimes wonder if God still feels this way today.  Look at how chaotic our world is.  It is full of sin in every corner.  I am so thankful that God holds back His own wrath so that another person might come to Jesus.
