Another aspect of loving mercy that God has revealed to me this week is actually loving mercy. I know crazy thought, right? What I mean is love the mercy that God has granted us. Over and over again the Bible states how God has shown us mercy and we are therefore saved through this mercy, we must love the mercy that he has given us and openly receive it. Picture this-someone gives you a present all nice and wrapped up pretty, big shiny bow and all and you just leave it there…sitting on the table unopened…forever. Sad to think about. That is how we are with God’s grace! He’s given it to us all nice and presentable through His son and its our job to receive it. That ole statement, you can lead a horse to water, but you cant make him drink. Salvations a two way street. God’s done his part, now its ours!
Alrighty, get ya Bibles ready, bout throw some scripture at you for your reading pleasure, do enjoy the lovely messages of God’s mercy!

Where is another God like you, who pardons the guilt of the remnant, overlooking the sins of his special people? You will not stay angry with your people forever, because you delight in showing unfailing love. -Micah 7:18
