Living in the Overflow of Mercy

The Lord wants to grant us His mercy beyond our expectations. He wants to forgive our sins and iniquities and be merciful to our transgressions because of His great love towards us. When we repent of our sins and turn to the Lord, the blood of Jesus cleanses us from all sins. 

The prodigal son received mercy beyond his expectations when he returned to his father. Zacheus received mercy beyond his expectations when he met Jesus and his whole life was transformed. The laborers in the vineyard who could not find employment until the last hour, received mercy beyond their expectations when the master gave them the same payment as those who found work in the morning itself. The thief on the cross received mercy beyond his expectation when Jesus promised him that he would with Him in paradise. 

"The LORD is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love." 
Psalm 103:8
