For Israel and Judah have not been forsaken by their God, the Lord Almighty, though their land is full of guilt before the Holy One of Israel. (Jeremiah 51:5)
Why is God saying this? Remember that Judah and Israel suffered the chastening hand of the Lord for backslidding and being unfaithful to their God. Yet God is faithful, when even his people are “Unfaithful” and act faithless toward him.
if we are faithless, he remains faithful, for he cannot disown himself.
2 Timothy 2:13 –
God’s grace, mercy and kindness are not about us, our merit, our great attributes or fine standing, but rather His. We already see in Romans 3:23 it says
for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, (Romans 3:23)
Sin is not just us doing the wrong things we should not, but it is also failure to be who we ought. Therefore, if any of us has come into a relationship with God and tasted his goodness, it is simply because he is good and shows mercy.
We on the other hand are not by nature what God desires and this is why Jesus Christ died for us to offer a sacrifice worthy to pay for not just sins we have commited, but the sin that makes us into sinners by mode of opperendae. We have a way of doing things that displeases God, a way about us. We need not look any further then certain concepts we all know well: Example: Many ask, “Why is it so easy to take for grantid those who love us most yet try to impress those who treat us the worst” or “Why do we do the irrational and unkind things we do. Why do we treat those closest to us worse then those who we do not even know?” – it is because we are flawed sinners by default and we do this to others in our faithless dealings but we also do this to God- a God who still loved sinners enough to send Jesus Christ to save.
