We humans, in our most base and natural state, have little fear of God. When we are not denying His existence, we are acting as if He is just like us. We bring Him down to our level, pretending that our reasoning matches His. But God is not like us...His ways and His thoughts are so much higher than ours. Even so, because of Christ's sacrificial work on the cross, God proclaims that, if we seek Him and call upon Him, He will abundantly pardon us and show us His compassion that is infinite and beyond our ability to comprehend.
