But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit,whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior (Titus 3:4-6)
God’s Sunrise will break in upon us,
Shining on those in the darkness,
those sitting in the shadow of death,
Then showing us the way, one foot at a time,
down the path of peace. (Luke 1:78-79 MSG)
GOD’S PROMISE TO YOU:
The Biblical meaning of “mercy” is to be spared or rescued from judgment, harm, danger, or trouble.
Psalms 4:1 says, “Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness: thou hast enlarged me when I was in distress; have MERCY upon me, and hear my prayer.”
Psalms 6:2 says “Have MERCY upon me, O LORD; for I am weak: O LORD, heal me; for my bones are vexed.”
Psalms 9:13 says, “Have MERCY upon me, O LORD; consider my trouble which I suffer of them that hate me, thou that liftest me up from the gates of death:”
1 Timothy 1:12-13 says, “And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry; Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained MERCY, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief.”
Titus 3:5 says, “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his MERCY he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;”
Jude 1:21 says, “Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the MERCY of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.”
