OUR GREAT MERCIFUL GOD

 Yesterday morning I wanted to catch a picture of the beautiful oak tree I can see out my study window--but, God in his kindness gave me a bonus.

When we talk about God's mercy we must expand our normal thinking concerning that word.  His mercy should be a daily comfort and encouragement to us.  In Tozer's book Faith Beyond Reason he says this about God's amazing mercy.  "What made Jesus' death uncommon, unusual?  It was the dying of the just for the unjust.  It was His sacrificial dying.  His vicarious dying.  He paid a debt He did not owe in behalf of others too deeply in debt ever to pay."  Such mercy as this surely overflows to every possible difficult situation in our lives.  Oh that we would display mercy in our dealings with other people that God would be shown wonderful in our lives.

Chapter 5 on the mercy of God will be our topic of discussion this Thursday morning.  Plan to join us.
