6. Paul appeals to us based on God’s mercy rather than God’s wrath.

Romans 9:15 God is not unfair. “He had every right to say to Moses: ‘I will be merciful to whomever I choose and I will show compassion to whomever I wish.” (TPT)

Romans 9:23 In this verse, our bodies–our lives are called “vessels” into which God desires to pour his glory.

Ephesians  2:4-5 “God is rich in mercy because of his great love for us. We were dead because of our failures, but he made us alive together with Christ. (It is God’s kindness that saved you.)” (NOG)

1 Peter 1:3 God raised Jesus the Anointed from death and because of His great mercy we have been reborn into a living hope.

Lamentations 3:22-23 The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morninggreat is your faithfulness.” ESV, emphasis added.

7. Great is God’s faithfulness, love, and mercy.

God has shown mercy to my country by raising up intercessors, evangelists, teachers, writers, and through sovereign moves of God. 

God blessed me with godly parents, a godly grandmother, and a pastor’s wife who inspired the Sunday School and girls’ groups to read the Bible every day, memorize entire passages of scripture, and study the Bible. 

God has shown me mercy again and again when I was disobedient and rebellious, pursuing self-interest, and desires of the flesh. Thank You, Lord, that You never left me or gave up on me.

8. Sacrifice

An offering made to God by killing and burning some animal upon an altar, as an acknowledgment of his power and providence, or to make atonement for sin, appease his wrath or conciliate his favor, or to express thankfulness for his benefits. A sacrifice differs from an oblation; the latter being an offering of a thing entire or without change, as tithes or first fruits; whereas sacrifice implies a destruction or killing, as of a beast. Sacrifices are expiatory, impetratory, and eucharistical; that is, atoning for sin, seeking favor, or expressing thanks. (Webster’s Dictionary 1928

Under the Mosaic Law, the shed blood of an acceptable animal was the necessary means to obtain forgiveness of sin. “The law is simply a shadow of the good things to come. (From Hebrews 10:1 Voice)”

God satisfied that requirement once and for all by shedding the blood of His Son. Jesus became our living sacrifice because God raised Him up. Jesus died as us. We died with Him. When we accept His sacrifice–His death, burial, and resurrection–we become one with Him eternally.

Leviticus 16; Hebrews 10:1-10; Romans 6:3-4

9. Blessed are the merciful for they will be shown mercy. (Matthew 5:7 NIV)

  • Show mercy with cheerfulness. (Romans 12:8)
  • Let love be genuine. (Romans 12:9 ESV)
  • Share what you have with the saints in need. (Romans 12:13)
  • Bless those who persecute you. (Romans 12:14)
  • Weep with those who weep. (Romans 12:15)
  • Associate with the lowly. (Romans 12:16)
  • Repay no one evil for evil or insult for insult. (1 Peter 3:9)
  • Never avenge yourselves. (Romans 12:19)
  • If your enemy is hungry feed him. (Romans 12:20)

Mothers and grandmothers stay up many nights caring for babies and sick children, often work part-time or full-time jobs and still lovingly care for their families. 

Law enforcement, military, first responders and extraordinary citizens risk their lives to rescue and protect others.

Believers risk their lives to share the gospel.
