God’s Mercy

But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ — by grace you have been saved. (Ephesians 2:4–5)

One of the greatest facts about the God we serve is his limitless mercy. We are sinners. In fact, we are born into sin and thus need God’s divine mercy and Jesus’ increadible sacrifice in order to obtain the salvation and eternal life God has planned for us. But therein lies the awesome thing about God; even though we are quick to turn away from His love, our loving Father is always there to extend his mercy to us.

I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. (Romans 12:1–2)

We as sinners fall far short of the righteousness that our God deserves. Yet despite this we are made whole and righteous in His eyes through His grace and mercy. Our sins are forgiven, our trespasses wiped away. He holds no anger of frustration toward us despite our may faults. God is merciful and His love is infinite.

The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. (Psalms 103:8)
