    How merciful is God?

    God is Love (1 John 44:8) and mercy (Jeremiah 3:12). He expressed his infinite mercy when he came into our world of sin and suffering as a meek and humble (Matthew 11:29) human being in order to free us from sin. Furthermore, he did not condemn sinners (John 3:17); but ate and drank with them and taught then to overcome sin by his love and compassion. He loved his enemies, forgave them (Luke 23:34), prayed for them, offered the other cheek when struck on one (Luke 6:27-36), and did not fight back when he was crucified; for speaking the truth about Godís love and expressing that love in his actions. In doing this he expressed his uncompromised faith in His Father who is Love. His sacrifice redeemed us from sin by instilling His spirit of love in us. This spirit frees us from sin; which enables us to share in his joy and peace. He makes his spirit available to all, including those who betrayed him and killed him. Furthermore, even as he was led to his crucifixion he was concerned about the sufferings our sins would cause us rather than his own suffering (Luke 23:28). In addition, in order to share more fully in his sacrificial life he allows us to enter his sacrifice on the cross by allowing us to partake in his cup of sacrifice which he instituted the night before he died. Since his sacrifice is eternal, we can re-enter his sacrificial offering and bring our own life as an offering to the Father. Furthermore, his body, which he gives us in the form of bread, rekindles his spirit in our heart; because in it we see Jesusí sacrifice on the cross.

    Deuteronomy 7:9 Therefore know that the LORD your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments.

    Psalm 100:5 For the LORD is good;His mercy is everlasting, And His truth endures to all generations.

    Ephesians 2:2-4a
    But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ ...

    He is eternally merciful. In fact, He's so merciful that He'd rather die than live without us.
