The Attributes Of God- Jesus Is Merciful

November's "Attributes of God" couplet focuses on God's nature being full of mercy. Where would we be if our Saviour wasn't merciful? Who could stand before Him?

Being on the receiving end of God's mercy, I am personally so grateful for His kind, compassionate heart which overflows with mercy towards His people. I particularly love the words of Ephesians 2:4-5 which tell us that not only is God merciful but that He is RICH in mercy towards us! His heart ABOUNDS in mercy and is not short on supplies!

It would take a plentiful source such as this to love the unlovable, to face the Cross on their behalf and extend compassion to unworthy sinners. I know I always say it, but praises to our wonderful Saviour and His beautiful heart of mercy, kindness and love!
The Attributes Of God- Jesus Is Merciful.

"Jesus Christ is merciful, compassionate and kind.
A love so inexhaustible, in Him alone we find."

Romans 9:15-16
"For He says to Moses, “I will have mercy on whomever I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whomever I will have compassion.” So then it is not of him who wills, nor of him who runs, but of God who shows mercy."

Ephesians 2:4-5
"But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved.)"

Hebrews 4:16
"Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need."
