A Message of Mercy

When Jesus leads us into difficult places, He is promising to serve us there, allowing us the opportunity to fully rely on Him.
Deuteronomy 31:8 "The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.
When Jesus serves us, we exalt Him by serving others. 
1 Peter 4:10 "Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms."

Nothing is more clear to the world of Jesus' love than our love.
Matthew 5: 14-16 "You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven."

1 Corinthians 13:4-8,13 "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delighted in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
 Love never fails. 
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love."

By His Mercy,
