Mercy

 

Mercy is given.

Mercy is free.

It comes from God,

And should flow through me.

Mercy sees what we did,

And knows the why too.

Mercy flows from God,

To both me and you.

 

God has such patience.

He understands our ways.

He is willing to forgive,

Each and every day.

We may not understand,

How God can love and forgive.

Jesus overcame death,

So that each of us could live.

 

His mercy endures forever,

For those who seek Him.

With Him, there are no losers.

With His mercy, we will win.

He can overcome our heartaches.

He can cover our fears.

He will rejoice when we are happy,

And wipe away our tears.

 

Enjoy each day you are given.

Bask in God’s grace.

Then give mercy to another,

As God’s love flows from your face.

What comes to us from God,

Should flow through us too.

He will supply the person,

For your mercy to go to..

 

Mercy is meant to be shared.

It should not stay still.

As you receive God’s mercy,

You should do His will.

 Lamentations 3:22-25

22 It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.

23 They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.

24 The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.

25 The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him.

 

1 Corinthians 1: 2-4

2 Grace be to you and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

3 Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;

4 Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.

 

To be a Christian, we are to do as Jesus did. He brought us the “good news” or the New Testament of love. He demonstrated every day how to be merciful to believers and unbelievers alike. When God shows us mercy and forgiveness, we should be willing to do the same to another. We gladly accept this free gift from God and should realize this precious gift from the Creator of the Universe. He did not spare His mercy to sinners. He gave His only Son, to be the perfect sacrifice to forgive all of our sins. His blood can cover every sin of every man, but a person must seek forgiveness and accept this free gift from God. If you do not believe in His Son, you do not accept this gift of continual mercy.  To deny the existence of this sacrifice is to accept the punishment of eternity in hell. All of mankind has sinned against God and deserves punishment, but God sent the perfect Lamb to return us to righteousness and allow us to eternity in heaven. His mercy endureth forever.
