All Because of Mercy

Pastor Rachael

I was listening to K-LOVE radio on my way to work this week, and the song “All Because of Mercy” by Casting Crowns came on. The chorus to that song says,

“I know the only reason I can stand here unashamed is not because I’m worthy, it’s all because of mercy. There’s no way that I could earn it, praise God my debt is paid. It’s not because I’m worthy, it’s all because of mercy.”

Ephesians 2:8-9 NIV says, “God’s grace has saved you because of your faith in Christ. Your salvation doesn’t come from anything you do. It is God’s gift. It is not based on anything you have done. No one can brag about earning it.”

What an amazing gift to be given. I think back when I was growing up, to those birthdays and Christmases that I would celebrate with my family. And I remember all those amazing gifts that my family and friends would give me. Back then, it felt like the best presents were the Barbie dolls, the LEGO sets, and the stuffed animals. But in reality, the best gift we can ever be given is the unending grace and mercy from our God.

So this week, church, as we are beginning our week, I encourage you to be thankful for that amazing gift that God has given us. Remember that we did nothing to earn his mercy and grace, but we have received it anyway.

Have a great Monday!
