The Marvelous Mercy of God
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to
His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the
resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead” (1 Peter 1:3). One of the great
themes of the Bible is God’s loving mercy toward sinful man. As the Apostle
Peter noted, if it were not for God’s mercy we would have no hope in this
life. Notice some of the great statements about God’s mercy found in the
“God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us,
even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with
Christ…” (Ephesians 2:4-5). Isn’t it wonderful to know that the King we serve
is abundantly wealthy? What is even greater is his wealth is not a monetary
passing pleasure but in eternal mercy with is realized with each Christian. As
Paul reminded Titus, “trough the Lord’s mercy we are saved” (Titus 3:5).
“The LORD is gracious and full of compassion, Slow to anger and great in
mercy” (Psalm 145:8). What makes God’s nature so wonderful is that he is
not a capricious and vindictive God. While God does get angry with the
wicked (Psalm 7:11), his mercy toward those who love and obey Him far
outweighs His anger. In reality, if each one of us got what we deserved we
would be lost in Hell for all eternity. As the Psalmist pondered this he said,
“He has not dealt with us according to our sins, Nor punished us according to
our iniquities. For as the heavens are high above the earth, So great is His
mercy toward those who fear Him; As far as the east is from the west, So far
has He removed our transgressions from us” (Psalm 103:10-12).
The Christian owes a great debt of gratitude to Almighty God for his
marvelous mercy. May we show our appreciation for God’s mercy by humbly
submitting to His will. Friend, have you received the mercy of God? Have you
obeyed the gospel? If not, you can obey God’s will today by hearing God’s
word (Romans 10:17), believing in Jesus as the Son of God (John 8:24),
repenting of past sins (Luke 13:3), confessing Jesus as Son of God and Lord of
your life (Romans 10:10), and being baptized in water for the forgiveness of
sins (Acts 2:38). May each of us constantly be reminded of the marvelous 
mercy of Almighty God!
