MERCY AND GRACE
And the Lord passed by before him, and proclaimed, The Lord, The Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth.
One of the things that make me know that God is extremely merciful is that when Adam and Eve sinned and rebelled against His word, He still came to have fellowship with them in the garden. We are told in the Old Testament that God has a judgment seat, and even in the judgment seat, He still has a mercy seat. So depending on your case before Him, He can decide to sit on the mercy seat. Once He sits on the Mercy seat, it does not matter the wrongs you did, it will be cancelled.
We are living in the dispensation of grace, and grace operates with a sister called Mercy. That is why Judas Iscariot had no business committing suicide, because of grace and mercy. The two attacks that came on two of the disciples, Peter and Judas Iscariot, were betrayal and denial. Peter’s sin was more dangerous than Judas’ because denial is more serious than betrayal, but Peter repented with tears and he was taken back.
For people to know that Peter had really been forgiven, he was the one that was given the power to preach on the day of Pentecost. John who was the beloved apostle could have been given the power to preach, but for us to know that mercy and grace still work, he was given the power to preach. He preached very powerfully on that day and won three thousand souls for the church. And so no matter how heavy you think your sins are, just repent; come to Jesus and you will surely obtain mercy and grace.
• Pray and ask God to show you His mercy in any area you have wronged Him, and His grace will abound towards you. (Deut. 7:9)
• As for God, when you sin, He will still come for you.
• Psalm 25:10, Psalm 86:15
