(Mat 5:7) Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
Do we show compassion to others who are indebted to us? Are we willing to forgive the debt of those who are undeserving of our forgiveness? Mercy is willing show goodness to those who have wronged us or done us harm.
The ability to authentically, and completely, forgive others is a grace given to us from our Lord.
If we possess the spiritual fruit of mercy (goodness), we can be certain the Holy Spirit is indwelling us. If the HS is indwelling us, it is proof we have been forgiven of our sins by Almighty God, and thus, are assured of receiving mercy from Him at the final judgment.
This is one mark of a person who has been blessed by God and is living a happy life in Him. Does today’s verse describe your life? Do you have lasting peace and happiness in Christ? If not, trust in Christ and follow Him. He makes us a promise “All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.”
May the Lord bless each one of us as we “Think On These Things”.
