God desires our wholeness

Listen, Beloved: I have not destined you for wrath, but salvation in my Son. I direct my anger against things that ensnare and seek to destroy my image-bearers. I hate sin because of the way it fractures people. To restore wholeness, I will unleash my anger against all things that threaten to disintegrate you. Keep encouraging one another, remember that I am doing what is necessary to make you whole.

1 Thessalonians 5:9-11
Letters to the Beloved
