Mercy for all men!

Scripture reading for June 27th:  Job 15-18, Romans 11

Key Scriptures: Romans 11:32-36 “For God has consigned all to disobedience, that He may have mercy on all.  Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God!   How unsearchable are His judgments and how inscrutable His ways!  “For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been His counselor?”  “Or  who has given a gift to Him that he might be repaid?”  For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things.  To Him be glory forever. Amen.”

God’s great mercy is available to all.  All men need it because all have been disobedient.  There is no one who has counseled God or given anything to Him.  All men owe Him everything! Repentance can only come when this is recognized. Worship is to be our response to this truth!

Job 15:14 “What is man, that he can be pure?  Or he who is born of woman that he can be righteous?”  

Prayer:  Lord, thank You for Your great mercy to me, a sinner and one in need of mercy.  Today I worship You as the source of all things and my Lord.  Amen.

Worship is the fitting response to God’s mercy!

Scripture reading for June 28th:  Romans 11

Key Scriptures for over-comers:  Romans 11:32-36  “”For God has bound all men over to disobedience so that He may have mercy on them all.”  “Oh the depths of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God!  How unsearchable His judgments and His paths beyond tracing out!  “Who has known the mind of the Lord:  Or who has been His counselor?”  “Who has ever given to God, that God should repay him?” For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things.  To Him be the glory forever! Amen!”

God’s wisdom and knowledge are beyond all human understanding.  All men are of Adam, and through disobedience are under darkness and death.  God’s love bound them over so that He might make His mercy available to all men, Jew or Gentile!  This plan of redemption came through God’s own initiative and the Son’s willing obedience to the Father’s plan.  The promised Holy Spirit would bring God’s wisdom and knowledge to each person who would believe!  From Him and through Him are all things!  He deserves all glory, now and forever!

Observations for over-comers:  God, alone, planned and worked out our salvation and deliverance from the penalty of death from disobedience!  He alone is worthy of praise!  Give Him all glory!  “Lift up your heads, O you gates; lift them up you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in.  Who is He, this King of glory?  The Lord Almighty–He is the King of glory!”  (Psalm 24:9-10)
