“O give thanks unto the Lord; for He is good for His mercy endureth for ever” Psalm 136:1
If you think about it, every one of us at one time or another has been shown mercy. Not having to pay a bill, not receiving a deserved punishment, not being penalized for handing in a late paper, receiving help on a job or project around the house that was your own responsibility.
The greatest shower of mercy who ever lived is God. God shows mercy to everyone, or we’d all be dead. We’ve all sinned. We’ve all violated God’s holy laws. And yet God does not immediately cast us into hell when we violate His commandments. If he did, earth would have been unpopulated long ago. God’s greatest show of mercy was at the cross of Calvary where His Son died for our sins. Roman 8: 6-8. God’s mercy is such a tremendous blessing, not just at the moment of salvation, but throughout our Christian life.
When we as Christians sin, we do not lose our salvation, but we lose our fellowship. When we confess our sins, our fellowship with God is restored, and God is not longer angry with us.
This is the season to restore your fellowship with God.
Prayer: Dear Lord, We come before you to repent of my sins. May your mercy fall upon me so I may restore my fellowship with thee. Amen
