To Love Mercy

Posted: 4th January 2011 by Marshall Mabry in Praise and Worship

Mercy is a quality that many of us say we lack. However, it must be one of our main qualities as a coheir with Christ.  In Micah 6:8 Our Lord says “He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” What does He mean “to love mercy?” Mercy walks hand-in-hand with love. Is it mercy that triggers our compassion? Is it mercy that moves us to action? The fact that you are breathing and reading this message is because of God’s great mercy. (Titus 3:5) I don’t believe our Heavenly Father cares about our status in Man’s eyes.  I don’t believe He hears or sees us when we are disobedient.  Sin can not present itself in any form to our Holy God. But, when we take on the righteousness of Christ, when we walk in the power of His precious blood, when we truly understand that we are saved by His amazing grace – we become more like Him and His virtue to be merciful.
