Mercy - VRSLY Devotional - 08.01.17

But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior. - Titus 3:4-6

We've all heard Uncle Jesse say, "Have mercy," a few times. But he's talking about something a little different than when we pray and ask God to have mercy on us.

Mercy. To show compassion instead of carrying out the deserved punishment.

We’re all sinners, and as sinners we deserve death...

But God is merciful! When we confess our sins and ask for forgiveness, he shows us compassion. As Christians, we have the promise of eternal life with Him!

Who is a God like you, who pardons sin and forgives the transgression of the remnant of his inheritance? You do not stay angry forever but delight to show mercy. - Micah 7:18
