What Saddens God

It Is Written, Ephesians 3:6, that the Gentiles should be fellow heirs, of the same body, and partakers of His promise in Christ through the gospel.
It is easy for most people to picture an angry God.  What they have trouble seeing, is a loving, caring, just God.  Most people only know what other people say is in the Bible.  They never find out for themselves what the real truth is.
Some of us are so hardened against God, we wouldn't recognize or acknowledge a blessing, if it was a sign 100 x 100' tall.  Here are some basic truths.
John 3:16 says, for God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
When Jesus suffered and died for us, all of our sins, past, present, and future were forgiven.  By His stripes we were healed.  Jesus conquered death and satan, and as a result we will to, because salvation was now possible through Jesus.
God has given believers the right to unlimited blessings in Jesus name.  All we have to do is to receive them.  Many people do not receive all that God has for them because they don't know, or they mistakenly think they are bothering God.
It saddens God when we don't accept what He has given us, and will give us.  When we lack faith or trust in His Word it saddens Him.  When we don't read His book of instructions, the Bible, it saddens Him.  When we don't talk to Him in prayer, it saddens Him.  When we don't recognize what Jesus did for us, it saddens Him.
The question we should all answer.  If we were God, would we give our only son to suffer and die for mankind?  If the world treated that son the way the world feels about His Son, would we still love them?   Have a blessed day.  Praise the Lord!
A WARNING!  Don't let second or third hand knowledge determine your eternity.
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me.  Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation.  Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
Thank You Lord
