Blessed are the merciful: for they shall acquire mercy. Matthew five:7
These who have received mercy are these who will show mercy. And only these who show mercy will continue to obtain it. Displaying other folks mercy is not just sentimentality or softness. It is sympathy that serves. Jesus does not merely save us from something, He saves us for something. He desires to express His life via us as we serve other folks.
When I hunger for Jesus, when I obtain Christ into my heart, then His life, His like, His compassion, His gentleness, His mercy, will flow via me to other folks.
I thank God for our attractive churches, but I think the issue that is going to touch the lives of our communities will not be any of our buildings, but our merciful acts of kindness.
1 by 1, we can make a adjust as we go out and show the like of Christ to our neighbors. Persons do not care how significantly we know, till they know how significantly we care.
