"The Lord takes pleasure in those who fear Him, in those who hope in His mercy." - Psalm 147 V11

"...I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live..." - Ezekiel 33 V11

People often think of God as a heavenly being ready to judge and punish the evil doers. But if it was so there won't be a single person except Jesus, who lived or who will live that will go unpunished. We all deserve the wrath of God. On the other hand God clearly mentions in the Scripture that He takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked but He would like even the wicked to repent and turn away from their sinful deeds. God displayed His great love for us through Jesus Christ who died on the cross in our place. We are redeemed by His blood. Be a part of God's pleasure by fearing and hoping in His mercy.

"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
