Ezekiel 18:23 ” Do I take any pleasure in the death of the wicked? declares the Sovereign Lord. Rather, am I not pleased when they turn from their ways and live?”

Our great and benevolent Lord wants all men to be delivered and come to a saving knowledge of the Truth. He takes no delight when the wicked die in their sin. But neither does God happily bring affliction or grief to the children of men. (Lamentations 3:33) That’s because we’re pretty good at doing it to ourselves and then being forced to live with the consequences of our bad choices. His real delight comes in those who fear Him and put their hope in His unfailing love. (Psalm 147:11)…for His deepest desire is to pardon, forgive, and save us from ourselves and spiritual death.
