Mercy is a harder topic to grasp for me. It is defined as “compassion or forgiveness shown toward someone whom it is within one’s power to punish or harm.”
One of my favorite Christian bands is “MercyMe” and one of their songs Flawless talks about how God sees us. It is only through Jesus’ blood that I could be seen flawless by the creator of the world.
Beth Moore states this perfectly ” as the paradox is this: if we never need rescuing, we’ll never know the Rescuer.” Jesus – the perfect provider of merciful rescue!
Psalm 116:1-2 “I love the Lord, for he heard my voice; he heard my cry for mercy. Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live.”
