Thoughts on Mercy
THOUGHTS ON MERCY
“Behold, the eye of the Lord is upon them that fear Him,
upon them that hope in His mercy”
Mercy is the outflow
of undeserved love.
“Be merciful, even as your Father is merciful “
Mercy falls on penitent hearts.
“Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and He will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon.”
Mercy received will be in proportion
to mercy given.
“Blessed are the merciful… for they shall obtain mercy”
Mercy received is the power for us
to become a “living sacrifice”
“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God,
that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice…“
All ministry is the fruit of Mercy.
“Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy…”
2 Corinthians 4:1
Unity is the atmosphere
“But God, who is rich in mercy, for His great love wherewith He loved us, even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ“
“O give thanks unto the God of heaven:
for his mercy endureth for ever”
