“How much wrong we do to God and his grace when we speak of sins being punished by his judgment before we speak of their being forgiven by his mercy,” ~ Pope Francis December 8, 2015
I have a new saying; “A Saint is nothing more than a sinner who fell down and got up multiple times.” We all fall short of the Glory of God. We are all sinners. Every last person who walks on this earth is a sinner, yet we ALL have been justified by the Grace of God. G.R.A.C.E. = God’s Righteousness At Christ’ Expense.
Calvary is the precipice upon which the Love of the Father is seen. It is the apex of the Mission of the Son of God. Unconditional mercy, unconditional love and unconditional forgiveness. Yet in our own judgment of others we do wrong to God and His Grace when we presuppose and place limitations upon His Mercy. The Bible teaches us “Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his mercy endures forever” Psalm 136:1.
If we are called to an encounter with Christ; to be like Him who is the face of the Father’s mercy, then we are called to be that Face. The face of Love to the unloved, the face of healing to those who are hurting, and the face of forgiveness for those who have fallen short of the Mercy of God and have not had the opportunity to walk through His Open Door of Grace.
Let us not judge others, let us attempt to be the Face of Forgiveness; the Face of His Mercy, that we might be that voice crying out… GIVE THANKS unto the LORD for HE IS GOOD!
Keep on Keepin’ on!
