Mercy



As each year draws to a close, from Thanksgiving to Christmas, we’re reminded of how important it is to “stay thankful” each day. Count your blessings, seek peace, and resist the commercialism, keeping in mind the truth that these holidays represent. So, in keeping with that “spirit”

Mercy is a term we often hear,
Especially when Christmas time is near.
Peace on earth and mercy mild.
Behold! The wonder of Christ, the Child.

Lord, bring clarity, help us reflect
That we may respond in proper respect.
What is this mercy? I’m at a loss.
What’s mercy for me, came from You at great cost.

Mercy is aware of how far we’ve strayed.
It feels the rejection, which we’ve all displayed.
Mercy has to swallow the urge to repay.
Doesn’t just disappear, doesn’t just go away.

Mercy only applies where wrath would be right.
It restrains punishment, tho not taken as slight.
Somehow the penalty, need be satisfied.
Now we see Jesus, who suffered and died.

A body like ours knowing happiness and joy.
A body like ours, yet Heaven’s little Boy.
A body like ours with every precious breath.
A body like ours to stand in for our death.

A life like ours? No. Perfect, without blame.
A life like ours? No. Free from guilt and shame.
A life like ours? No. For He was the promised Christ.
His life was like no other…the perfect sacrifice.

It was The Father’s pleasure, His plan was to restore.
Let mercy mean much more to us, now and forevermore.
Mercy smiled on us, but on Christ, was turned away.
Mercy, mild – the reason we rejoice on Christmas day.

Here’s The Word:

Hebrews 2:17 Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.

In Him,
Cros
