The Weekend Brew: Rich in Mercy

I want to thank you all so much for linking with me for Fresh Brewed Sundays.  I enjoy visiting your blogs and being encouraged in His Word.  Please make sure you take a moment to visit one or two others who have linked up.  And please remember this is a simple Sunday post with just a scripture and a picture, with a little bit about what it means to you.  I welcome the longer posts, but please understand that Sunday is a family day for me so I may not get around to reading them for a bit.

But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions —it is by grace you have been saved.   (Ephesians 2:4-5)

God’s love for me is vast, something I’ve always had a hard time comprehending.  Even when I walked in sin and shame, He saw me, and still loved me.  He showed me so much mercy and forgiveness, making me alive in Him.  Each and every day He showers His love, mercy and grace on me, and keeps me free from the bondage of sin.  His mercy is unending.  I am so thankful for a God who’s mercies are new every morning.

I would love for you to join me for Fresh Brewed Sundays.  This is where we share a scripture with just simple insight.  No heavy words necessary.  Feel free to use the button in your post and link up below!

    Barbie – just yesterday I was thinking of my prodigal years and how, even though Jesus knew they would happen, reached across the spam of time and saved me. In spite of our mistakes, He loves us so much.
    Blessings,
    Joan

    Amen Barbie. This is something I am crying out to God about. I want to really have a greater understanding of His love for me. I was praying in the Spirit the other day and then suddenly in English this came out of my mouth without me thinking a thing, “I want to know what love is. I want You to show me. I want to feel what love is …” Do you remember that old secular song? So that is my quest — to dig deeper into the well for this much needed revelation.

    Love you,
    Beth

    Friend I so love coming to see what you share here each week. It is by grace and mercy that we are saved…such an overwhelming thought sometimes. That He loves us enough to pursue us to lavish His love on us. Thanks so much for sharing this verse today and for hosting a place where we can gather together in His Word each week. Such a blessing!
