Mercy

Jude 1:2

Jude 1:2

May mercy and peace and love be multiplied to you.

After Thought

Our pets have a way of communicating these three expressions of God. They provide unconditional love the moment we walk in the door. They are merciful always ready to forgive us with the wag of a tail, and they supply peace by quiet companionship.

God has created so many ways to reveal to us His attributes.

Grace is a wonderful blessing. Grace costs the giver everything and costs the receiver nothing. That is what Christ has done by giving us His grace.

1 Corinthians 8:9

1 Corinthians 8:9

Be careful, however, that the exercise of your rights does not become a stumbling block to the weak.

After Thought

Our goal as Christians is to do nothing that would hinder others from coming to know Christ. We should live in such a way that our life creates an appetite in others to partake of the truth we know. Our presence should leave a sweetness and not a bitterness.

1 Hear my cry, O God; give heed to my prayer. 2 From the end of the earth i call to You when my heart is faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

Can we find a friend so faithful,
Who will all our sorrows share?
Jesus knows our every weakness--
Take it to the Lord in prayer.

Proverbs 19:11

Proverbs 19:11

Good sense makes one slow to anger, and it is his glory to overlook an offense.

After Thought

The goal of every Christian is to overcome evil with good. The Bible does not say we will never be justified in being angry, but that anger does not give us excuse to sin, nor is it to be of long duration. The Bible says, "In your anger do not sin: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry." (Ephesians 4:26)

"Follow Me!" Those are the words of salvation that takes into account our will and our behavior. Faith follows the Lord in His steps and we know that as we do, where He is, we will be also.
