His mercy is boundless
‘Let the wicked forsake his ways and the evil man his thoughts. Let him turn to the Lord, and he will have mercy on him, and to our God, for he will freely pardon.’
No matter how much sin we have committed in the past, all the unworthiness, let it all be cast aside by what God said to us, that He will have mercy on us. Maybe our past is disgraceful, but remembers that we have forsaken our ways and evil thoughts, and turned to the Lord for our righteous ways. No human mind can comprehend of how much His mercy and forgiveness to us are, as His love is boundless, unlimited always.
Right now, let our ways be favorable to our Lord’s eyes, making Him pleased with our ways. Even if you are not a Christian and are reading this now, I tell you right now, to give this chance to the Lord, for He wants to receive you. What you have to do is to get your hearts opened and see His wonders worked in you. Perhaps the reason you do not want to accept now is because you do not know what changes you will really go through. If you do not even want to give this a try, how do you know what God is going to do inside you?
As for all Christians trying to get your friends and relatives know of this salvation, I hope you will get strength from knowing that our God will never forsake us. Just as we see this urgency to save our friends from that torturous pit, we have to firstly be a light that lives out the testimony of God. Only then will our friends’ hearts be opened because of the things we’d done.
Always remember that God’s mercy is there for us. It’s all because of Him that we started living the way that pleases Him. Just like how much mercy and love He has showered upon us, we will start feeling the change of our attitude towards our friends because of the testimony we are imitating, that is Jesus Christ our Lord.
