"Praise the Lord, all you Gentiles! Laud Him, all you peoples! For His merciful kindness is great toward us, and the truth of the Lord endures forever. Praise the Lord!" - Psalm 117 V1, 2
"The Lord is gracious and full of compassion, slow to anger and great in mercy. The Lord is good to all, and His tender mercies are over all His works." - Psalm 145 V8, 9
Some picture God as an angry being ready to punish those who sin, but God is merciful and full of compassion. God hates sin and sin cannot enter into His holiness. Praise the Lord for He loves those who repent and turn to Him and seek His mercy. His merciful kindness is great toward us and in His graciousness He sent His beloved Son Jesus Christ to die in place of all sinners. Seek the mercy of God and receive His grace which He offers freely to all. Praise the Lord!
"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
