Thoughts on Today's Verse...

God is rich in mercy and generous with grace! Isn't that wonderful for us? I don't know about you, but I sure know I have failures, shortcomings, sins, and transgressions. Without God’s mercy, I would be lost in my sins (Romans 3:23-25). Without his grace I would be cut off from the life God longs for me to have (Romans 5:6-11). God acted on our behalf with his rich mercy and generous grace when he sent Jesus to show us his love (1 John 4:9-10). Now, because of his rich mercy and generous grace, I have died to that old sinful self my life is now tied to Jesus' future and not the one I earned (Colossians 2:12, 3:1-4).

My Prayer...

Father of all grace and mercy, thank you. Thank you for being God like you are God. Thank you for extending grace when I have not deserved it. Thank you for giving mercy when I most needed it. Thank you for giving life when I thought my life was doomed and hopeless. May my wealth be in mercy and grace much more than money and gold. Help me be more like you. In the name of Jesus, my older Brother and Savior, I pray. Amen.
