THE GOD OF MERCY – By Robert E. Hanna


Robert E. Hanna

Scripture Reading: Psalms 103:8

Possibly the most comforting passage of God's Word to  the believer in this dispensation of His grace assures us that  "God, who is rich in mercy, for His great love wherewith He  loved us, even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us  [made us alive] together with Christ, (by grace are ye saved;)  and hath raised us up together in heavenly places in Christ  Jesus" (Ephesians 2:4-6a). What confidence, what assurance  and anticipation is ours! Our position is already in heaven,  " ... from whence we look [expectantly!] for the Saviour, the  Lord Jesus Christ" (Philippians 3:20).

Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but  according to His mercy He saved us ... " (Titus 3:sa). But forthe  mercy of God, there would be no salvation for sinful man.  Neither good deeds nor moral conduct can attain unto  redemption. Keeping of the law cannot effect acceptability to  God. Tribal heritage is of no consequence in attempting to  gain entrance into the family of God. God is not willing that  any should perish ... but will have [desires] all men to be saved  (ref. II Peter 3:9, 1 Timothy 2:4). But salvation is not to be  achieved; rather, it must be received!

The God of mercy has made man savable. Our apostle  explains. "Christ died for our sins according to the  Scriptures... was buried... and rose again the third day  according to the Scriptures" (I Corinthians lS:3b,4). "God was  in Christ, reconciling the world unto Himself, not imputing  their trespasses unto them ... Be ye reconciled to God" (II  Corinthians S:19a, 20b). God in Christ did the work; all that  remains is for man to believe. "Thanks be unto God for His  unspeakable gift" (II Corinthians 9:1S). "The Lord is merciful  and gracious!"

How God Saves Men
Believing Christ DIED, that’s HISTORY.
Believing Christ DIED for YOU SINS and Rose again that’s SALVATION.
