When was the last time you thanked God for His mercy? For the fact He sent His only begotten Son Jesus to the cross to die in your place and pay your sin punishment and be raised from the dead? For the fact He offers you forgiveness and everlasting life through faith in Jesus and turning from your sins and devoting your life to Him?
For the fact His mercy doesn’t stop there but goes on forever? For the fact He forgives us each and every day when we fall short and turn to Him? For the fact He forgives us because He wants us in His forever fellowship and takes no pleasure in seeing the wicked die and go to hell and the lake of fire forever?
For the fact His angels rejoice in heaven when one lost sheep repents and turns to Him? For saving you from His wrath and forever apart from Him because of your sins and adopting you into His forever family through faith in and your life being devoted to Jesus as Lord?
Do you ever take God’s mercy for granted? Please don’t. I have. And sometimes I still do. We shouldn’t. Not ever. So let this message be a reminder to us all. To thank God. For His mercy. His mercy which endures forevermore! Just as His mercy goes on forever, so should our praise and thanksgiving!
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
“Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?” Ezekiel 33:11
“I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.” Luke 15:7
“O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever. O give thanks unto the God of gods: for his mercy endureth for ever. O give thanks to the Lord of lords: for his mercy endureth for ever. To him who alone doeth great wonders: for his mercy endureth for ever.” Psalms 136:1-4
