From Pastor Greg


If there is a single word, in fact, that could summarize God's dealing with His people, it would be the word mercy. Mercy is at the foundation of His character, the function of His creative work, the fountain from which all His blessings flow to His people, and the force behind His Rulership in heaven The greatest manifestation of God's mercy, of course, is that of redemption, His saving men from sin.

It is also noteworthy that with few exceptions, the Septuagint translates cheseḏ (mercy in Hebrew) with the common Greek word eleos, which speaks of "kindness or good will towards the miserable and afflicted, joined with a desire to relieve them." The whole point of mercy, therefore, is to relieve the affliction that man suffers because he cannot relieve it himself. Mercy is always to the helpless.

With God's mercy as our model, we can understand the truth of who God really is to us and to his creation. God does not desire to judge his creation. Judgment, in fact, is reserved for those who do not show mercy and kindness.

If you are in need of Gods mercy today, then just open your heart to Jesus and He will extend to all the mercy you need. Blessings . Pastor Greg.
