    Mercy from A-Z

    Last night at Awaken, I taught from Psalm 136. It was the second-to-last message in a series called HeartBlog, a sampling of the book of Psalms in 15 weeks.

    Psalm 136 is a unique Psalm – it repeats the phrase “His mercy endures forever” in every single verse (26 of them!). The phrase may seem a little repetitive, until you think about how much mercy you really need. When you grasp the depth of your sin, that phrase will become one of your favorites!

    26 uses of the phrase made me think of the 26 letters of the English alphabet. I realized that for every letter I could use to describe sin, there is mercy to cover it.

    God’s mercy covers us from A-Z!

    Although the Psalmist did not have this in mind as he wrote, it applies to us today. Here’s a sampling of sin and a side dish of mercy to go with each one…

    Adultery

    His mercy endures forever.

    Blasphemy

    His mercy endures forever.

    God HATES sin.

    I’m NOT saying that God just winks at our sin, supplies the appropriate amount of mercy to cover it, like Aloe Vera on a sunburn, then moves on. God HATES sin – it put His Son on the cross. However, because Jesus died on the cross, there is mercy to cover every sin.

    Repent from your sin from A to Z, recognize that if it weren’t for mercy, you wouldn’t even be alive to repent, then receive mercy with confidence!
