Having Mercy


Countless generations have come to understand their need for mercy; countless generations have found it. Ours is no different.

Of course there have always been those who think they do not need it, and these are a sad lot.  They reject the one thing they need most of all; their pride defeats them.

I see better things for all of you, for the very fact that you have taken time to look at this post would indicate that you are not so proud as to think that God’s mercy is beneath you.  You, dear reader will see a greater future than those who are blinded by pride, for you will seek God’s favor and find it though our Lord Jesus Christ.

Have mercy on me, O God,
    according to your unfailing love;
according to your great compassion
    blot out my transgressions.
Wash away all my iniquity
    and cleanse me from my sin.

Psalm 51:1-2

May all of us fall on our knees and pray like this with the hope and expectancy that our God will hear our prayer, and that the work of Jesus Christ on the cross will suffice for our cleansing before God. May we also rise from this prayer filled with hope, joy and love for our neighbors, and may that hope, joy and love suffice for us to share His Good News with them.
