Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God I had just gotten in form milking the cows and serving breakfast to my family It was a hot day in late June and I was already late for church I bustled about the house gathering my belongings my children and just trying to look my Sunday best My husband and two children were finally ready to go so we headed to our local church about a mile down the road As we took out usual seats in the third pew Minister Jonathan Edwards came steeped up to the plain podium He began There is nothing between you and Hell but air The statement though logical sent shivers through my body He continued speaking of our ignorance taking God for granted It was only Gods gentle hand that kept us from falling into the fiery pits of Hell The illusion of our wickedness and benightedness weighing us down further and further toward damnation were streaming out of his mouth The accusations he was making caused some to shutter at his mere words There are black clouds of Gods wrath now hanging directly over your heads he boomed I sat back in terror imagining the once gentle and understanding God that I had known now transforming into a bitter disgruntled authority The minister compared the Lords great wrath to that of a storm something that I can say all of us can relate to Its power and anger have the ability to destroy us all instantly but God chooses to keep us alive by the good his heart A pang of guilt was stabbing me in the heart as I tried to hold back tears I realized then that maybe I couldnt be saved I had committed so many sins and crimes some of them unintentional The bow of Gods wrath is bent and the arrow is made ready on the string and justice
