God’s Mercy Never Runs Out

“But God is so rich in mercy, and he loved us so much, that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead.” Ephesians 2:4-5


Sometimes, it’s easy to forget how great God’s mercy truly is. You have to get the right image of God! He’s not waiting in heaven with a lightning bolt ready to strike anyone who makes a wrong move. God is good and kind and shows you mercy when you mess up. He is “rich in mercy.”


Look at the story of Mary Magdalene. Jesus said, “Bring me that woman with seven demons, and I will show her mercy.” He delivered her, and she was among the first to see Him resurrected.


Psalm 86:5 tells us, “For thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive; And plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon thee.” He has plenty of mercy. You can bring Him your addiction, shame, sin, and pain. He will forgive and heal it all. His mercy never runs out.


God loves you like you love your children. Even though you may get frustrated with them, you can never turn your back on them. The Bible says, “His mercy endures forever.” God is like a father standing out on the porch every day looking down the dusty road, waiting for His lost child to return. God is waiting for some of you. He’s ready to accept you into His arms now. He’s not waiting for you to get your life straight. He’s not waiting for you to get out of rehab. He’s not waiting for you to quit committing the sin. He’s ready for you to give your life to Him right now.
