Scripture:- Psalm 102:1-28
Topic:- The Attributes Of God [8 & 9]
Text:- Exodus 3:14
We all have a basic understanding of what love is, but we are unable to comprehend the depths of True love. This is the love that God embodies.
God is the genesis of love; He is its source; and it is by Him that we experience love. God’s love is based in a supreme desire to glorify Himself, for He is the being most worthy of love.
By seeking His own glory, God pours forth His love upon His creation that it might better give glory to Him. God loves His creation and better than His creation, God loves His people — those whom He will take with Himself into eternal glory!
This is one of the greatest truths of Scripture: in spite of who we are and though God hates the workers of iniquity, in spite of all this, God still loves us! It’s amazing. See Psalm 5:5.
Mercy is when that which is deserved is withheld to the benefit of the object of the mercy. God has demonstrated this attribute in abundance with respect to mankind.
We from nearly the beginning of our existence have deserved nothing but wrath; having sinned and fallen short of eternal life in glory, we can do nothing to commend ourselves to or defend ourselves before God.
But thankfully, God has been so amazing in His mercy. Over and against merely having the mercy to allow us to live out our miserable lives without destroying us instantly.
God has chosen us to greatness and glory by the hand of His Son. The believer finds himself in Christ and enjoys full well the fruits of God’s mercy.
Prayer Point:- Oh Lord God, You are good and Your goodness is for ever, bestow upon me henceforth by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.
Have A Glorious Thursday!
