Mercy For The Greatest Sinners

05 Feb

“God who is rich in mercy…. loved us even when we were dead in our sins [and] quickened us together with Christ.” Why did He do all this? “That in ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace, in His kindness towards  us in Christ Jesus” (Eph 2:4-7). So He allures others and their children to come to Him and partake of the same grace through Jesus Christ.
As the Jerusalem sinners were of the highest sort among the Jews, so these Ephesian sinners were of the highest sort among the Gentiles (Eph 2:1-3; 2:11, 12)…. When God saves one great sinner, it is to encourage another great sinner to come to Him for mercy.
—John Bunyan “The Jerusalem Sinner Saved”

    We are often merciless with ourselves. That does nothing but keep us away from God. Thank you for this reminder of His mercy, Levi.

        Yes, Levi. I am now a country girl. 🙂 This is a beautiful farming area. I like the connection to the soil. Of course, I do none of the hard work (LOL). But God speaks so clearly through nature.

          Very cool. You know I live on a farm and am also a master gardener in my spare time. There’s something about the soil that’s bring great joy and peace and the simplicity of rural life is wonderful. I’m in NYC now for the next several days and the closest thing to green I have to visit a park. Lol. I’m so happy to hear your now officially a “country girl”. Enjoy the Spring. 😊
