This theme focuses on GOd’s loving discipline for His children and how He reconciles us to Himself. How does God deal with our sin and weaknesses? How do we in turn deal with the weaknesses of others? How can we keep ourselves in His love without taking advantage of it? Why was Christ’s death necessary to fulfill God’s righteous wrath and restore us to Him? What can we learn from biblical characters like Gideon and David, who are illustrations of God’s justice and mercy?
