The Unending Resource
“The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.” (Psalms 103:8)
Today’s Morsel: Do you understand the difference between Grace and Mercy? Grace is getting something we do not deserve while mercy is not getting what we do deserve. The psalmist says that God is plenteous in mercy. That means it is an unending resource. God never runs out of it. We see this by the ways and methods in scripture in which He shows it. We see it in His election, in His covenant, in His redemption, in His regeneration, in His pardon for sins, and in eternal life. And we also see it in the abundance by which He offers it to everyone. Do you have a need for His mercy? It’s free and available for the asking. “It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.” (Lamentations 3:22-23)
Sing: Years I spent in vanity and pride, caring not my Lord was crucified, knowing not it was for me He died, on Calvary.
Mercy there was great, and grace was free; pardon there was multiplied to me; there my burden soul found liberty, at Calvary.
Thought For Today: There is no end to His mercy.
