THE MERCY OF GOD
SOME OF YOU HAVE MESSED UP IN LIFE AND YOU NEED THE MERCY OF GOD. I WILL
SHOW YOU THROUGH THIS STUDY THAT HIS MERCY IS AVAILABLE TO YOU AND ALL
YOU HAVE TO DO IS REALIZE WHERE YOU WENT WRONG AND ASK HIM TO FORGIVE
YOU, THEN ASK HIM TO GIVE YOU MERCY AND HE WILL. LET ME EXPLAIN WHAT IS
MERCY. MERCY MEANS TO HAVE COMPASSION. IT ALSO MEANS TO HAVE PITY. WHEN
MERCY IS APPLIED IT CAN LEAD TO A LESSER PENALTY THAN YOU REALLY DESERVE
TO GET FOR YOUR WRONG DOINGS. IN SOME CASES, BY THE MERCY OF GOD OR THE
FAVOR OF GOD, HE CAN EVEN CANCEL OUT ALL THE CHARGES AGAINST YOU THAT
CALLS FOR AND DEMANDS JUDGEMENT, EVEN THOUGH YOU ARE GUILTY AS CHARGE.
IF YOU GET YOUR HEART RIGHT AND TRULY REPENT, THE LORD IN HIS POWER CAN
GRANT YOU MERCY, BUT DON'T TRY TO TAKE HIM FOR A FOOL. HE KNOWS YOUR
HEART AND IF YOU JUST WANT TO ESCAPE THE PUNISHMENT BUT YOU'RE PLANNING
ON DOING IT AGAIN AND AGAIN. IF YOU WANT MERCY, THEN YOU HAVE TO TRULY
REPENT AND BE SORRY FOR WHAT YOU DID AND MAKE A DECISION NOT TO DO IT
AGAIN. REPENT MEANS TO TURN AWAY FROM SOMETHING EVIL. IT ALSO MEANS TO
HAVE A CHANGE OF MIND, A CHANGE OF HEART, A CHANGE OF HABIT, A CHANGE OF
POSTURE, A CHANGE OF CHARACTER. IT MEANS TO CHANGE YOUR POSITION IN LIFE
AND DO WHAT'S RIGHT. IF YOU DO ALL THE ABOVE AND MAKE A DECISION TO STICK
WITH IT AND LIVE RIGHT AND DO WHAT'S RIGHT, THEN YOU DEFINITELY QUALIFY
FOR THE MERCY OF GOD TO COME IN AND COVER YOU. THE MERCY OF GOD IS JUST
THE LORD EXTENDING HIS LOVE TOWARDS HIS BELOVED ONES THAT CHOOSE TO
HONOR HIM AND HIS WAYS EVEN WHEN YOU MESS UP. NOW DON'T TAKE GRACE FOR
GRANITE. IF YOU MESS UP, THEN FESS UP. DON'T TRY TO HIDE YOUR SIN BY COVERING
THEM UP AND BLAMING OTHERS LIKE ADAM DID WITH EVE. OWN UP TO YOUR
MISTAKES LIKE DAVID DID CONCERNING BATH-SHEBA AND HER HUSBAND URIAH.
SEE GENESIS 3:1-12 AND 2 SAMUEL 11:1-27, 12:1-13 FOR COMPARE AND CONTRAST. ONE
RECEIVED JUDGEMENT FOR COVERING HIS SINS AND PASSING BLAME, AND THE
OTHER ONE OBTAINED MERCY AND A LESSER SENTENCE OR JUDGEMENT FOR
CONFESSING AND FORSAKING HIS SINS. YOU HAVE TO E HONEST WITH GOD. HE
KNOWS EVERYTHING ALREADY ANYHOW, HE JUST WANT YOU TO TELL HIM AND EVEN
CONFESS IT TO HIM. IN ORDER TO BE HONEST WITH GOD, YOU MUST FIRST BE REAL
HONEST WITH YOURSELF. IF YOU'LL LIE TO YOURSELF, THEN SURELY YOU'LL LIE TO
GOD AND TO ME AND TO OTHERS. SOME OF YOU DON'T HAVE NO ROOM TO PUT
OTHERS DOWN AND CONDEMN THEM FOR MESSING UP, BECAUSE YOU'VE HAD SOME
MESS ALONG YOUR WAY THAT YOU JUST SWEPT UNDER THE RUG AND THOUGHT THAT
NO ONE KNEW ABOUT IT. GOD KNEW! THAT OUGHT TO BE ENOUGH. FORGET ABOUT
WHAT OTHER PEOPLE THINK, YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO GOD'S FORGIVENESS AND
MERCY JUST LIKE THE REST OF HIS PEOPLE. THE DEVIL DON' WANT YOU TO KNOW
THAT AND THAT'S EXACTLY WHY I'M TEACHING HIS TO YOU. I HAVE INCLUDED A
BIBLE STUDY ON THE MERCY OF GOD THAT WILL HELP YOU DISCOVER THE PRICELESS
RICHES OF HIS MERCY TOWARDS YOU, BECAUSE HE LOVES YOU. NOW STUDY TO SHOW
YOURSELF APPROVED AND BE BLESSED.
