DEVO 10.05.22

Yom Kippur (part 2)

“Who is a God like you, who pardons sin and forgives the transgression of the remnant of his inheritance? You do not stay angry forever but delight to show mercy.”

‭‭Micah‬ ‭7:18‬ ‭NIV‬‬

- We serve a God of Mercy!

- Not only that, but it is His delight to show mercy!

- God’s mercy means His pity, compassion, and kindness toward His people.

- It is totally undeserved but he freely offers it!

- Mercy means that you don’t get what you deserve.

- Romans 6:23 says, “For the wages of sin is death”

- That means that what you deserve and what you earn from your life of sin and missing a perfect and right relationship with God is death and eternal separation from God.

- His Mercy says that you don’t get that.

- Then Gods Grace steps in and says, You get what you don’t deserve!

- That’s the second half of Romans 6:23. This speaks of Gods mercy and Grace . It goes on to say, “but the free gift of God [that is, His remarkable, overwhelming gift of grace to believers] is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (AMP‬)

- ‭You deserve death, but He’s not going to give you that. That’s Mercy!

- Instead, He is going to give you Eternal life connected to Jesus Christ. That’s Grace!

- Today, as we recognize Yom Kippur, The Holiest Day on Gods calendar, it all about His mercy.

- Lean in and ask for His mercy!

- Spend time asking for it and receiving it.

- Then walk away in His Grace!

- You didn’t earn it but it is freely offered, so receive it, today!

- Thank Him for both His Mercy and Grace! There is no one like our amazing God!

- Have a great Yom Kippur! Remember, it ends at sundown today!
