The bow of God’s wrath is bent and straining

The bow of God’s wrath is bent and straining. The arrow is already set on the string, and justice aims it directly at your heart. It is nothing but the mere pleasure of God–an angry God–who is not restrained by any promise or obligation, that keeps that arrow from being drunk with your blood. This means that all of you whose hearts have never been changed by the power of the Holy Spirit, and have never been born-again and made new creatures, raised from being dead in sin to a new light and life–all of you are in the hands of an angry God.
~ Jonathan Edwards
