Blessing #78………

“The Lord is gracious and full of compassion,
Slow to anger and great in mercy.” Psalm 145:8…………

The Lord doesn’t leave us in the dark when it comes to letting us know how He wants us to live. Not only does He give us clear commands and instructions in the Bible, but Jesus Himself in His time on this earth modeled to us the way we are to live. The verse above may seem on the surface like it’s simply a beautiful description of glorious God who is gracious, compassionate, not quick to anger, and merciful. He also shows us aspects of Himself – of His image in which we who follow Jesus are to grow. Yes, as we grow in God’s image, we should become gracious, compassionate, slow to anger, and merciful. The Lord blesses us with instructions AND with showing us what it looks like to walk in His ways. He is our perfect, precious, heavenly, almighty, awesome role model. And in the strength of Christ, in the power of His Spirit, in the love of God almighty, we can grow in His blessed splendorous forever image, AMEN!
