Called Out Of Darkness

 

Once we knew
not mercy

and walked in the darkest
night

but now we too are
God’s people

called into His marvelous
light.

**********

“But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people. That you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;”

“who once were not a people, but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.”

1 Peter 2:9,10 NKJV

Mercy Triumphs

 

Judgement is
without mercy

to the one who has
shown none

but mercy triumphs
over judgement

as we love and follow
the Son.

**********

Lord Jesus, I desire to show mercy to others on a daily basis, instead of judgement.

**********

“For judgement is without mercy to the one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgement.” James 2:13 NKJV

Throne Of Grace

 

Let us come now
to His throne

do not hesitate
but run

that we may receive
mercy and grace

from our High Priest
Jesus the Son.

**********

I can obtain mercy and grace for You are with me.

Thus He Did For Them

 

Joseph recognized
his brothers

who had done
him wrong

yet returned their money
in sacks of grain

and with provisions
sent them along.

**********

I can be merciful to those who’ve hurt me, for You are with me.

**********

“Then Joseph gave a command to fill their sacks with grain, to restore every man’s money to his sack, and to give them provisions for the journey. Thus he did for them.”
