God’s Mercy

 

Ephesians 2:4-5

But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us.  Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, by grace ye are saved…

What of Today’s Verse…

I cannot think of anything I’d prefer the Holy God to be rich in than mercy.  I know my failures, shortcomings, sins, and transgressions.  Without his mercy to pardon, and without his grace to send Jesus to pardon at first, I would be lost and without God.  Now, because of his rich mercy, my life is tied to Jesus’ future and not the one I earned for myself.

Let us Pray:

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 found in mercy and grace much more than money and gold.  Help me be more like you.  Through my older brother, Jesus,  I pray.  Amen.

Words of Wisdom

A Bond-Slave Of JESUS

These words mean the breaking of my independence with my own hand and surrendering to the supremacy of the Lord Jesus. No one can do this for me, I must do it myself.  God may bring me up to the point three hundred and sixty-five times a year, but He cannot put me through it.  It means breaking the husk of my individual independence of God, and the emancipating of my personality into oneness with Himself, not for my own ideas, but for absolute loyalty to Jesus.  There is no possibility of dispute when once I am there.  Very few of us know anything about loyalty to Christ – “For My sake.”  It is that which makes the iron saint.

Has that break come?  All the rest is pious fraud.  The one point to decide is – Will I give up, will I surrender to Jesus Christ, and make no conditions whatever as to how the break comes?  I must be broken from my self-realization, and immediately that point is reached, the reality of the supernatural identification takes place at once, and the witness of the Spirit of God is unmistakable – “I have been crucified with Christ.”

The passion of Christianity is that I deliberately sign away my own rights and become a bond-slave of Jesus Christ.  Until I do that, I do not begin to be a saint.

One student a year who hears God’s call would be sufficient for God to have called this College into existence.  This College as an organization is not worth anything, it is not academic; it is for nothing else but for God to help Himself to lives.  Is He going to help Himself to us, or are we taken up with our conception of what we are going to be?

“I am crucified with Christ; nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me.”  Galatians 2:20
