mercy (자비)

Psalm 103:8 (ESV)

8 The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.

 

Mercy. 자비.

What a wonderful thing it is when we are shown mercy.

It’s completely undeserved. Unearned. Unwarranted.

The fact that the mighty creator of the universe, the sovereign King of all things great and small, can be so kind is mind-boggling.

And yet, despite our sinfulness – our continued rejection of Him – ‘… God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ …’ (Ephesians 2:4-5a)

Wow! Alive with Christ!

Let that just sink in for a moment.

We were dead. But now we’re alive.

How could you not be thankful?
