Mercy – The Infinite Compassion of God

Mercy

Mercy can be defined as benevolence, pity, forgiveness, and kindness toward people

Mercy is part of God’s nature, that is the reason He is described as ‘Merciful’
God showed mercy at Salvation, and continue to show mercy in forgiveness. Divine mercy is different from human mercy, Divine mercy is infinite, it cannot be exhausted.

God’s mercy is not your right, but it is the extension of God’s kindness and patience to punish those who deserves it. It’s because of God’s mercy we have a relationship with him.

Divine mercy can be withdrawn if you continue to be rebellious. Study these Bible verses, pray and ask for His mercy, believe and do not return to your sinful ways.
