My husband and I enjoy going on leisurely drives to help us unwind and connect. Recently, we drove up the coast and viewed all of the mansions lining the beach. Such extravagance! Yet, I am reminded that my Father is rich beyond all worldly measure. While digging “Into the Word” , I read a passage that explained how he shares the wealth with us:
But God is so rich in mercy, and He loved us so much,
that even though we were dead
because of our sins, He gave us life
when He raised Christ from the dead.
(It is only by God’s grace that you have been saved!)
For He raised us from the dead along with Christ
and seated us with him in the heavenly realms
because we are united with Christ Jesus.
So God can point to us in all future ages
as examples of the incredible wealth
of His grace and kindness toward us,
as shown in all He has done for us who are united with Christ Jesus.
Ephesians 4:2-7, NLT
I have a mansion awaiting me one day. God’s mercy is mine. What a blessing!
Q4U: How has God’s rich mercy impacted your life?
