Have Mercy

September 20, 2013

We each have individual motivations behind our actions, or inactions. Whatever these motivations are, they have impurities in them. They are influenced by our background, our circumstances, and our faith. As we learn to act more like Christ, more justly, our old self will get in the way of our new self many times. Despite our best intentions and efforts of serving like Christ served others, we fall short. The beauty is we are forgiven, a new creation in Christ.

This song, “Kyrie Eleison” (sang by the Christ Church Choir in Nashville, TN), sings of our request for mercy as we come before our God in prayer and present ourselves and our deeds before Him. As they sing, “Lord have mercy” we should remember to bring this same mercy to others. Mercy has been extended to us; let us extend this mercy to others!
