Mercy and Grace

Because Jesus, God incarnate, was fully human and experienced all the temptations, pain, and struggles of life we know He understands our struggle. Although fully human Jesus was also fully God so He was totally without sin so He could pay the price for our sin. Today it is this God who is calling you into His presence to find mercy and grace to help in your deepest times of need.

For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
Hebrews 4:15‭-‬16 NIV

You are a Masterpiece

God isn’t through with me yet. 🙏 Did you know that in Christ you and I are masterpieces that God isn’t finished with? (Philippians 1:6) He is the Author and Prefector of our faith and He isn’t done writing our story! (Hebrews 12:2)

Tonight the canvas of your life might be a mess. The story might seem like a horror plot unfolding around you. The pain and hurt might be so blinding that you can’t see how God is using all things for good, but Scripture promises He is. (Romans 8:28)

I guess what I’m saying is… don’t give up! God isn’t done with you yet. Through faith in Jesus we are forgiven and free!

Boast Only in the Cross

Everything I am, everything I have, every good thing about me, all of it is because of the good God whom I serve. As I look at the cross I am reminded that all of us are the same… we all need Jesus. Presidents and Kings need Jesus. The beggars on the street need Jesus. The rich, poor, young, old, power and weak all need Jesus.


God has the power to give and the power to take away. His loving kindness and mercy are not dependent on my goodness but on His perfect, unfailing love for me. So knowing my desperate need for Jesus and the grace that He came to give, how could I ever boast? Everything I have is a free gift from God through my faith and trust in my Lord Jesus. What (or who) are you boasting in?


My prayer for you and I today is that we would continue to remember that without Jesus we are nothing. Without the loving kindness, mercy, grace and faithfulness of God none of us would have hope. Through Jesus we become sons and daughters of the God of the universe. Today, let us rejoice in the freedom and hope we have in Jesus Christ!
