Hebrews 8:12 For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.
Today, we are reminded of the “better Covenant” that has been made with us through Jesus Christ. I praise the Lord this morning for who He is. He is love. He is just. He is faithful. He is compassionate. He can relate with us. He feels our infirmities. He is our High Priest. He is our burden bearer. He is our Friend. He is our brother. He is our Father. He is our Head. He is “better”. He is so much more. But this morning I’m reminded of a specific attribute of Christ for which I am forever grateful – He is merciful.
I’m thankful that the Lord reached down and saved an incapable, unable, undeserving sinner like myself. He extended His mercy and grace, drawing me to Himself, and saving my soul. And to this day, and into eternity, my sins and my iniquities (both past and future) He chooses to throw into the deepest see, and behind His back, to remember them no more. What mercy! What love! What a covenant!
Having understanding of this, might we love Him with an unconditional love (because He first loved us). Might we walk in His grace, living for His purposes, for His glory. Thank the Lord for His mercy.
