Good morning people who want to know God
I want to step through the letters of the word ‘nice’ and tell you about our God. Let’s look at ‘N’ today:
Think of the nicest person you know…maybe it’s your mum or your dad, maybe it’s your grandma or grandpa, maybe it’s someone at Church, or maybe it’s your cousin or best friend. Take the nicest person in the world and multiply that by infinity and that’s how nice God is! GOD IS NICE! God is niceness without an end.
Sometimes people think God isn’t nice because of a lot of the bad things people do to other people. Somehow we think it is God’s fault, but it’s not. People make choices and when they make bad ones, God hurts even more than we do.
The truth is God is nice.
Children know a nice person when they meet one. They don’t want to be around people who aren’t nice – you know: grumpy people; mean people. But they do want to be around people that are nice.
Jesus was so nice that parents brought their children to Him so He could bless them. He held them and blessed them.
Mark 10:16 Jesus took the children in his arms and blessed them by placing his hands on them.
The Bible often talks about God’s GOODNESS and God’s KINDNESS; His NICENESS.
Sometimes we think God is ready to beat us with a stick when we sin and “make us repent”. But that’s not true.
Romans 2:4 God’s kindness leads us to repentance.
When you understand how NICE God is, you will want to put sin right with Him because you like Him so much.
God is NICE. I like that.
