You are familiar with the story of how the man who went down the road from Jerusalem to Jericho was set upon thieves who stripped dead ...the priest and levite passed him by on the other side of the road , but the Samaritan had compassion on him , bound up his wounds , pouring in oil and wine , brought him to an inn ,and took care of him ....

When Jesus asked ;which of these do you think was neighbor to him who fell among the thieves ?He was answered;He who showed Mercy".

From the story we understand immediately that Mercy is giving compassionate treatment to those in distress...we admire such acts of Mercy ...we say that Mercy is good and we take heart when the Bible tells us that God is Merciful..

The nature of God's mercy..

When the psalmist says Lord is Merciful ,he is drawing from the 34th chapter of Exodus,where God revealed Himself to Moses on Mount Sinai. God passed by Moses on the Mountain, proclaiming ;The Lord God , merciful, and gracious ,long suffering ,and abounding in goodness and truth , keeping Mercy for thousands.."

The Lord is Merciful and gracious ,there is no question that God is Merciful...

Another thing about God's mercy is that it is everlasting...The Lord mercy is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him..

Those who received God's mercy will have it forever...It is not only wide and deep ,it is long lasting....

. The manifest of God's mercy

The best way to understand and appreciate God's mercy is to observe it in action ...

Again God is compassionate to those in distress ...that Mercy and God is Merciful...What we need to do now is to remember the distress...We are all sinners who come short of God's glory...sin brings condemnation,death and eternal judgement which would be the faith of everyone of us, had it not being the mercy of God that came to expression again...

God seeing us in our sin and misery ,seeing using our condemnation ,acted mercifully by sending His only son to rescue us... Jesus came and fulfilled all righteousness in our behalf ,and exchanging his righteousness for our sons...

Seek God !Call upon him.Forsake your sinful ways and return to the Lord ...He will ha e mercy...

The reflection of God's mercy

. Reminding you again of our need to bear God's image in darkened world.

As Christian's we simply must be Merciful if at all possible .May God grant us the Grace to do so . In addition it can be said that Mercy is one of those things we can do for the good of ourselves.

Mercy is the compassionate treatment of those who are in distress..we sinners need mercy from God , and Isaiah tell us how to seek it by seeking God , Calling upon him , forsaking our sinful ways and turning to the Lord ...May it be granted to each of us,and then may we in turn learn to be Merciful to others...

The merciful man does good for his own soul and ..blessed are the merciful ,for they shall obtain mercy...

The Lord requires you to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your GOD
