Therefore, you Israelites, I will judge each of you according to your own ways, declares the Sovereign Lord. Repent! Turn away from all your offenses; then sin will not be your downfall. Rid yourselves of all the offenses you have committed, and get a new heart and a new spirit. Why will you die, people of Israel? For I take no pleasure in the death of anyone, declares the Sovereign Lord. Repent and live!

ezekiel 18:30-32

God offers total renewal, Spiritual restoration, and a life saved from the destruction of sin. What can we ask for besides that? It might be too presumptive to ask for all of that to be given out of love, but thankfully God does. He does not resent the faithful for coming to salvation, nor does he hate the unfaithful for neglecting him, but loves all and wishes to see redemption for everyone. We can return the love God has shown to us by taking that step toward him.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.

John 3:16-18
