Acts 17:30 (ESV), “The times of ignorance God overlooked, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent”.
When Jonathan flew in a plane for the first time and was served complimentary meals, he did not touch the meals even though he truly wished he could have them. When he saw others eating and drinking, he wondered if they had paid extra for the meals. But since he had no extra cash with which he could pay, he chose not to touch the meals. He eventually discovered that whatever was served was his because he was on the plane.
There are many Jonathans in our world today who will not receive what is freely offered to them because of ignorance or other reasons best known to them. Because of this, they have missed out on opportunities that would have bettered their lives. One of such free gifts is God’s mercy made available through Jesus Christ.
Because of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, God’s mercy has been freely extended to all, and whosoever comes to Christ can have it.
John 3:16-17 (KJV) reads, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved”
Jesus Christ lived and died for all the world and whatever resulted from his life, death and resurrection are freely available for all (the whole world). Yet, there are so many who have not found this love yet. Many have died and others are dying without accessing God’s mercy.
Go into today knowing that because God loves you, His son has died for you and because of Him, God is now offering you mercy. All you have to do is believe in the Lord Jesus and you’ll begin to enjoy God’s mercy.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank you for dying and making mercy available to me. I put my faith in you and confess that you are my Lord. Henceforth, I will enjoy your mercy because I believe in you. Amen!
