Rich in Mercy

Awful.

Conceited.

Mean.

Boastful.

Ugly.

Jealous.

Depraved.

Proud.

Terrible.

__________ (insert a negative description here)

In a word, Sinful.

Who am I describing? That would be us. You and I.

We are messed up.

There is nothing in us that would attract God to us.

We don’t deserve anything good. Not even the air we breath.

“But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy,…”

Rich in mercy. It flows from Him.

We get what we don’t deserve because God loves us.

Because of His love, we can have a restored relationship with Him.

He made the step toward us.

When you are at your worst point, His love reaches.

When the only pillow you have is found at rock bottom, His love reaches.

When you’ve just committed that same sin again, His love reaches.

When you have wounded those who are close to you, His love reaches.

“But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy,…”

God's Far-reaching Mercy

So, if God’s grace and mercy are cousins, how is His holiness related?

Find out next week.

But for now, soak up the mercy He has for you.
