His merciful nature is a central aspect of His character, expressed in His covenant relationships with us as undeserving people.
His mercy is expressed in his faithfulness to His covenant with us. He keeps His side of the bargain always, even when we are unfaithful.
His mercy never ends.
His mercy is fully expressed in Christ Jesus.
Jesus is the expression of the mercy nature of God. If not for Christ, we would be living in perpetual separation from God.
God chooses when and where to exercise his mercy. Romans 9:15-16
He decides how He would show mercy, to whom He would show mercy.
We can’t question Him or choose for Him.
We can but continually pray to be a recipient of His mercy.
God responds in mercy to those who call to Him.
As we conclude, mercy is the nature of God and should be our nature as His children.
His nature of mercy is what gives us confidence to always approach Him when we have gone astray, for in His mercy He awaits us and He would receive us. This is however not a chance to take Him for granted. As He is merciful, He is a just God and a consuming fire.
Let’s bow our hearts wherever we are and call to God for mercy.
Let’s pray that mercy speaks for us now and always.
