We usually ask questions when ever things happen…
Why not me?
This is where the problem starts, because life is not about “Why” or “Why not”, it is about “MERCY AND GRACE”…
With “Why” or “Why not” the focus of life is “ME”! The truth is that life does not centre around me, but Jesus Christ.
We should strive to be able to truly say “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing…“, in every situation where we are treated unfairly or unjustly. The fact is that we are not able to do so without Jesus, thus we need to keep our eyes focused on Him who died on the Cross for us, that we may receive mercy and grace daily.
No, this is not a cop out… we do need mercy and grace daily, but we should also give mercy and grace daily, FOR FREE!!!!
Let us therefore approach the throne of grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
I do not think that we are “allowed” only to come to the throne when we need mercy and grace, but when we are suppose to have mercy and grace to give to others also – even to those who betrayed and hurt us…
True freedom is when you know exactly where your boundaries are, and “MERCY AND GRACE” are two of our boundaries. Our boundaries is Christ! His death on the Cross is “MERCY AND GRACE”.
“This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you.
Then He stretched out His hands on the cross and died for His friends…
Jesus also commanded us to love one another – Love without mercy and grace is not true love!
Jesus we need you, daily! We need your mercy and grace daily and we also need You to help us give mercy and grace daily. Come Lord Jesus come, teach us Your ways!!!
