Not Punishment

God does not seek
your punishment,
He offers life,
and fulfillment.
He saves us from
the results of sin.
He renews ours souls
to start fresh again.

  1. “The Lord isn’t really being slow about his promise, as some people think. No, he is being patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent.” {2 Peter 3:9 NLT}

    Your poem reminded me of this verse. Thank you for reminding us that GOD wants us to have life 🙂

  3. All the punishment that we deserve on account of our sin and covenant infidelity He has laid upon Jesus Christ.

    There is therefore no punishment left for those for whom Jesus Christ died.

    I do wonder though, what is the difference between punishment and discipline?
