||Songs of Mercy – Esther Mui
Feature by Esther and Rebekah Mui
Within the recesses of the Ark of the Covenant, the Ten Commandments written on stone were placed at God's command, and above the tablets of law, covering the Ark, sat the mercy seat upon which the High Priest would sprinkle the blood of the sacrificial lamb on the Day of Atonement. Mercy triumphed and yet triumphs over judgment for those who show mercy (James 2:13, Matthew 5:7) Mercy is a blessed providence of the God who is merciful (Psalms 103:8), gracious, and full of compassion (Psalm 111:2-10). God's principle is, "forgive and be forgiven", "be merciful and obtain mercy", and he especially desires mercy far more than sacrifice (Hosea 6:1-6). A disciple of Jesus Christ constantly releases offenses and forgives wrongs. Such behavior is antithetical in the individualist, self-propelling, world of today.
The mercy of God is for those who fear Him (Psa 103:17). God does not relent of His character or moral standards, but He can certainly relent from executing judgment when He finds those who will seek His mercy. The fear of the LORD is much lacking today, even though Christ taught it to His disciples (Luke 12:5). The fear ( ??? (yârê')) of the LORD is to morally revere or to stand in awe of His glorious majesty. That results seeking His mercy at all times and prizing His grace. The fear of the LORD will lead us to cry out to Him not on the account of our righteousness but His great mercy for Him to hear and forgive, listen and act (Daniel 9:16-19). For the LORD delights in showing mercy and will be the One to cast our sins into the depths of the sea (Micah 7:18-20). And we cry out to God for blessing and mercy (Psalm 85) so that His way and salvation may be proclaimed in all the earth and to all nations (Psalm 67).
In contending earnestly for our faith, we are encouraged to build ourselves up in our most holy faith, to continually pray in the Holy Spirit, keep ourselves in the love of God, and look to the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. In this stature He will preserve us as His Holy Body till the great and awesome day of His coming. Praise the Lord (Isaiah 12 & Psalms 149)!
