Mercy is compassion shown to someone who deserves to be punished. Mercy at its peak is forgiveness. The greatest expression of “Mercy” is shown by God through His love for us.
Romans 5:8 Scripture Frame – Bible Verse.
– But God demonstrates his own love for us in this, while we were still sinners Christ died for us.
The truth about God’s mercy is that;-
- God’s Mercy describes His personality;-
Deutoronomy 4:31 ESV
For the Lord your God is a merciful God. He will not leave you or destroy you or forget the covenant with your fathers that he swore to them.
We only display our character, we only display what we have on the inside of us. God shows “Mercy” because that is who is He is, Merciful. God’s decision is always in line with his character, He has all power but still decided to be forgiven.
- God’s Mercy displays His Love;-
John 3:16 ESV
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
Ephesians 2:4-5 KJV
4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
God’s Mercy and compassion is birthed from His love for humanity, despite all our shortcomings, despite our failures and inconsistencies, His love has been consistent. Out of his love for us, He came down to earth to live a life we could not live on our own. What manner of love is this?
- God’s Mercy is unending:-
Lamentations 3:22-23 ESV
22 The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;
his mercies never come to an end;
23 they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
God’s Mercy is unlimited and never ending. His Mercy is forevermore. It is totally not dependent on what we do, because it is an expression of the person of Jesus. God’s mercy never ends, it keeps running after us.
- God’s Mercy is Free:-
So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.
God’s Mercy is free but not cheap, it is not dependent on what we do or did not do, it is priceless. It is totally based on what Christ did for us on the cross of Calvary. God’s Mercy is for you.
- God’s Mercy is timeless:-
Psalm 23:6 KJV
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
The Mercy of God is not affected by the passage of time, it is effortlessly consistent. It is not dependent on how far we have gone from God. God in himself is infinite and totally timeless, so are his attribute. God’s Mercy is meant to be seen in his people throughout their lives. Mercy is not a feeling with God, it is an expression of his person.
The Mercy of God is not affected by the passage of time.Tweet
