What does God’s everlasting mercy look like?

March 16, 2020

If something is everlasting it is amazing. Nothing I purchase is everlasting. No human relationship is everlasting. Even marriage is for this life only. Then what about mercy? That’s what we’re going to dig into today.

Psalm 100:5 states “ his (the Lord’s) mercy is everlasting;”

What is Everlasting ?

  • God’s kingdom is everlasting but man’s kingdoms rise and fall.
  • God’s love is everlasting but man’s love can be grieved or withdrawn
  • The Church is the only organization of people that is everlasting. Most organizations on earth eventually die. They exist with a strong leader and when that leadership ceases to pass on it dies. Even individual churches may close when they don’t pass on the torch to another generation.
  • The Bible defines “everlasting” as throughout time, through all ages and generations.
  • Everlasting is a defining word for things of God alone since He is timeless!
  • The faith you pass on will outlast you in the generations to come. Let’s leave a legacy!

What is God’s mercy?

The Hebrew word for mercy is defined in the following ways:

  • Amazing love that is not deserved
  • Tender compassion when we fail
  • Reproach when we need correction
  • Sometimes mercy and healing are used interchangeably in the New Testament.

I love the Passion translation of  Psalm 100:5b “(the Lord) He’s so loving that it will amaze you- so kind that it will astound you! And he is famous for his faithfulness toward all.”

Wow! What a God of everlasting mercy to me! Personalize that truth and you will be singing all day long!
