“Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.” (Jude 1:21)
The Cross . . . where Mercy met Justice!
We should have received death, yet we’ve been given life. We should have been beaten and crucified, yet we’ve been set free from the penalty of sin.
Jude fully understood Mercy as he admonished us to “look for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.”
In all that we do, everywhere that we go, all that we set our hand to, in every circumstance in life, “look for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ”. When we should have received justice, mercy that bought us eternal life is ours because of Calvary.
Never lose sight of it . . . never forget it!
Dear Lord, God of Mercy . . . how can I ever thank You for such an awesome gift! I could never have deserved such Mercy, yet You bought it, paid for it, and have given it so freely to me! I will praise You from now throughout eternity for making a way for me to receive the greatest gift of all . . . Mercy from the One who gave His all so we could call You, Abba, Father!
“Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” (Hebrews 12:2)
