A Merry Mercy Christmas

A Merry Mercy Christmas and Jesus in a manger with lambs

Dear Lovely Reader,

I wish you a very Merry Christmas! We know the reason for the season – Jesus Christ.

But have we ever thought deeply about ‘the why?’

This scripture reveals ‘the why’.

Through the tender mercy of our God,
With which the Dayspring from on high has visited us

-Luke 1:78

Mercy is God’s nature and one expression of God’s love for us.

The Mercy of God is so deep and bountiful. Tender and Great!

We see His Mercy through His tender heart and power to save humanity.

Jesus – our Dayspring was sent to earth as the utmost expression of God’s love and mercy. Jesus – the God man came into the world so precious and gentle. In a meek and mild way but also contained great power to save.

I love how Zechariah (John the Baptist’s father) filled with the Holy Spirit proclaims Jesus as ‘the Dayspring from on high’. I would recommend us all to read the whole chapter of Luke 1 – so fitting for the season!

Dayspring can refer to ‘dawn of the day’, ‘sunrise’ or ‘new beginning’. Through God’s tender [affectionate, loving emotions, gentleness, soft-hearted] Mercy for mankind, we have a new beginning through Jesus Christ.

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

-2 Corinthians 5:17

This is truly the greatest gift!

Through God’s Mercy – He drew us close through Jesus by coming into the earth through human bodily form to live and feel life like us.

He died in this human body the death we were meant to die. Jesus defeated the wages of sin – death, grave and hell and rose again triumphantly. Now He lives!

Thank God that by His mercy when we call upon Jesus’ name and confess Him as Lord over our lives and believe in Him – we shall be saved!

At this time, how special is it to commemorate the gift of a new beginning in Jesus Christ and salvation. All by and through God’s Mercy.

Thank you God for your Mercy!

Thanks for reading and don’t forget to share this message with others 😊

Peace and every good blessing be yours in Jesus Name. Amen
