Embrace Mercy

I think we need to understand mercy more than anything else. Yes, I know love is important too but when everything gets filtered through God’s mercy expressed through Christ on the cross it does two major things. One-mercy keeps us selfless. When we see that we aren’t that awesome in our own strength then we freely lay down our lives and become awesome in God. Two-mercy protects us from self-hatred or from beating ourselves up. “Now no more condemnation in Christ Jesus!” I think what that means is that I am not going to spend all my time with Jesus talking about my mistakes or what I am not doing..I am going to embrace the grace and mercy to live as full as I can. Embrace mercy and thus we fulfill “Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy!”
