And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.

Our Call to be Witnesses | Ralph Finley | 13 October 2018

God wants people to come to repentance.  He wants to bring the entire world to repentance.  And yet God is long-suffering. He shows forbearance.  He puts up with people's nonsense in this life, because he is seeking to lead people to a place of repentance. And He gives His people the opportunity to say to the world: "Repent. God loves you. He gave his son for you. And you need to turn to him, before the flood comes.  Before the waters of his wrath are poured out."
