How does God respond when aggravated?

Jude 1:15He will convict every person of all the ungodly things they have done and for all the insults that ungodly sinners have spoken against him.

Romans 2:8-9But he will pour out his anger and wrath on those who live for themselves, who refuse to obey the truth and instead live lives of wickedness. There will be trouble and calamity for everyone who keeps on doing what is evil.

God, as the just Judge of the world, will judge all those who love evil, who have only lived for themselves at the expense of others, and who have rebelled against and defied God’s righteous rule. Evil keeps people out of harmony with God and out of a place in God’s eternal home.

Psalm 106:43-46Again and again he rescued them, but they chose to rebel against him, and they were finally destroyed by their sin. Even so, he pitied them in their distress and listened to their cries. He remembered his covenant with them and relented because of his unfailing love. He even caused their captors to treat them with kindness.

Nehemiah 9:17They refused to obey and did not remember the miracles you had done for them. Instead, they became stubborn and appointed a leader to take them back to their slavery in Egypt. But you are a God of forgiveness, gracious and merciful, slow to become angry, and rich in unfailing love. You did not abandon them . . .

Joel 2:13Don’t tear your clothing in your grief, but tear your hearts instead. Return to the Lord your God, for he is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. He is eager to relent and not punish.

Despite his aggravation with our sins, God waits eagerly and patiently for us to return to him. He longs to respond to us in love and forgiveness—showing his mercy and kindness to us even in his times of discipline.
