Nobody is more Gracious than God
Atheists like to paint God as a hateful being, but there is nothing that could be further from the truth. God willingly sent His Son to die for His creation. We often take this for granted, but it is truly amazing. It would be comparable to sacrificing your son for a computer. This is incomprehensible to us, such that, it is difficult to even accept the comparison. God's demonstration of this kind of gracious love is one of the major reasons why I follow Jesus so willingly and absolutely. Even though there is a lot of pain and suffering in this world, it is not because of a lack of love. If God is willing to sacrifice His Son, there is nothing that He would hold back unless it was the only way.
Many people see the state of the world and think they would allow a lot less evil and pain, but the truth is it would be so much worse. Nobody is more gracious than God, we should all put ourselves at His mercy, just like King David did:
"I am in great distress. Let us fall into the hand of the LORD, for His mercy is great; but let me not fall into the hand of man (2 Samuel 24:14)."
