TODAY’S MEDITATION – God promised to be merciful… and He is (Psalm 86:5)

Many people, including believers find it hard to accept God’s mercy, especially when their conscience is burnt with guilt and self-condemnation. My brother, my sister, know that once you accepted Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, you entered a new covenant that is sealed by the grace of God. The grace of God means you have access to the forgiveness and the mercy of God, even when you do not deserve them. So, why continue to feel guilty? Why continue to condemn yourself? The Bible says, “there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus” (Romans 8:1). Now, allow me to explain the impact of this Word in your life. You see, God promised Abraham to be merciful to His people forever (Genesis 22:16-18). And He kept that promise because Jesus Christ came into the world so that this promise would be fulfilled. Indeed, by the grace of God, you benefit from a new status in Christ: a redeemed soul, born again, a new creation! So learn to appreciate the gift of God for your salvation. He is your loving Father, and what you can enjoy today has nothing to do with your actions: it began with Abraham’s sacrifice of his son Isaac and finished with the sacrifice of His own son, Jesus . And if you did not know: “Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a pole.” He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit”(Galatians 3:13-14). in other words, you have direct access to all the blessings God promised Abraham through Jesus Christ. And do you know what God promised Abraham? Read Genesis 12:1-3 Stay blessed in Jesus’ name. [facebook] [retweet]
