Mercy Endures

God's mercy either changes your heart or brings you to justice. When God's mercy is rejected, justice is served. Whether you are changed or not, God's mercy never changes. "For His mercy endures forever" (Psalm 107:1). 

Mercy is for sinners, and that includes everyone. "For all have sinned" (Romans 3:23). Mercy forgives the penitent sinner, but it always does much more. Mercy changes the hearts of sinners by the grace of God, and always to the glory of God. Those who are changed never cease to thank God for mercy. Their love for God endures forever, because God's mercy endures forever.

Unbelief says, "Why should I thank God for mercy?" Faith replies, "When you receive mercy, then, and only then, will you understand why I thank God for mercy now and forever."

You have no sin so wrong that God's mercy cannot forgive. You have no heart so hard that God's mercy cannot change. You have no situation so impossible that God's mercy cannot conquer.

Where can you find such mercy? Mercy is there where you are, because God is where you are. Ask God for mercy. He will answer, because His mercy endures forever. Then, you can join untold numbers of people who continue to thank God for mercy that endures.
