God Is Merciful
June 24 - Devotion
God is kind; he is merciful, and he forgives sins. The psalmist evaluated God’s kindness and stated,
“For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is His mercy toward those who fear Him; As far as the east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us. As a father pities his children, so the Lord pities those who fear Him” (Psalm 103:11-13).
God is the most powerful being in existence and he can do whatever pleases him. Despite his magnificent power to severely punish sinners, he has decided to show mercy and forgive anyone who would be humble enough to say “sorry.” God will forgive and restore any sinner that pleads for his mercy; he will also empower the fellow to pursue righteousness. How amazing is it to discover that God would not immediately exercise his magnificent judgments over sinners? Instead, he would express his love towards them, and grant them an opportunity of repentance. Jehovah would widely open his arms to receive repentant sinners, and he would forgive their sins. Moreover, God cannot forgive any sinner without a sacrifice, and Jesus Christ has already offered the sacrifice! Hence, any sinner who repents and expresses his/her faith in Jesus Christ – as the true Son of God – shall receive forgiveness of sin and be saved. The fellow would also receive everlasting life in heaven.
Dear God, I am sorry for all my sins, and I repent from them all. I give you my life today, and I confess my faith in your Son Jesus Christ that he is Lord. I believe that Jesus died and resurrected to give me eternal life; I confess my faith in him, and I accept him as my personal Lord and Savior. I promise to faithfully serve Jesus Christ throughout the days of my life. Amen.
