Romans 3.25 Jesus exhibits God’s mercy. In his blood conciliation God’s faith persuades mankind of his righteousness and the fact that he has brought closure to the historic record of their sins. (Not by demanding a sacrifice but providing the sacrifice of himself.) Jesus is the unveiling of the Father’s heart towards us. (See note to Hebrews 8:12; also 1 John 2:2)
After listening to the Blessing song Yesterday, Countless times I have been moved.
This morning when I walked into my office the song was playing. And it was saying He is for you. He is for you. He is for you. He is for you. And it said it many more times. There are times. I just flat have to be reminded. That he sent his Son to die for me. That he sent his Son to die for you.
God’s mercy has brought closure to your sin. To my sin
Amen, Amen, Amen
My name is (your name) and the spirit of the Lord is upon me and I have been anointed To preach the good news, to heal the sick, to bring sight to the blind. To Set the captives free.
To Proclaim this is the year of the Lord’s favor. Luke 4.18-19
None of this could happen If it wasn’t for the mercy of God.
