God gave up His son Jesus so that we might live. His sacrifice opened salvation to all those who call on His name. How merciful He truly is to want to give so much in order to save us from the penalty of sin, which is death. God verily, verily is gracious in all His ways.
The Lord is merciful and gracious,
slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
He will not always chide,
nor will he keep his anger forever.
God loves us no matter what we have done. There is no sin He could not forgive. He eagerly waits for us to come before him, drop to our knees and confess our wrongdoings. His pardon is from everlasting to everlasting. He remembers not the evil we have committed against Him.
For as often as we come before the Lord and turn away from our transgressions, He will absolve us. Moreover doing so, we become righteous, not because of anything we do, but because God is willing to extend his mercy so that His righteousness makes us perfect.
Oh, how wonderful God is to have given us his grace in such a way that we are no longer dead to sin, but alive with His spirit dwelling in us. All glory belongs to Him, who reigns supreme above all things and blesses us with life.
Truly, the Lord is Gracious.
