What is mercy?

mercy = compassion or forbearance shown especially to an offender or to one subject to one’s power


In Matthew 9, we find that Jesus went to eat with sinners – and the Pharisees started to complain. Jesus was showing these people mercy / compassion –
I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.” He was walking the walk – His actions were reflecting what He talked about. He was not being a hypocrite….

The verse for today is… “This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.” (1 John 4:9)

Are we sharing this good news to EVERYONE around us – not just who we deem as “good”. None of us are “good” – we all have sinned. Jesus was the ultimate example of what He wants us to do…. He ate with sinners, He had compassion on sinners, He healed sinners – He sacrificed His life for sinners….. He LOVES sinners!!!

How are we doing as Christians? Are we true “Christ-followers”? Do we do like Jesus did/does?

Are we afraid of what others might think??? Or are we willing to talk to / fellowship with / those whom Jesus came to die for??? The Gospel – GOOD NEWS is meant for sinners!!!

* Are you willing to know the Good News of God’s mercy??? That He sent His only Son to die for your sins….

* Are you willing to make God’s mercy an important part of your life??? Study God’s Word, memorize it – make it part of who you are – live by it’s word….

* Are you willing to tell others how God loves them so much??? I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.”
