Lord, I have heard the report about You; Lord, I stand in awe of Your deeds. Revive Your work in these years; make it known in these years. In Your wrath remember mercy!
His mercy is from generation to generation on those who fear Him.
14 What should we say then? Is there injustice with God? Absolutely not!
15 For He tells Moses: I will show mercy to whom I will show mercy,
and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.
16 So then it does not depend on human will or effort but on God who shows mercy.
And you were dead in your trespasses and sins
2 in which you previously walked according to the ways of this world, according to the ruler who exercises authority over the lower heavens, the spirit now working in the disobedient.
3 We too all previously lived among them in our fleshly desires, carrying out the inclinations of our flesh and thoughts, and we were by nature children under wrath as the others were also.
4 But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love that He had for us,
5 made us alive with the Messiah even though we were dead in trespasses. You are saved by grace!
6 Together with Christ Jesus He also raised us up and seated us in the heavens,
7 so that in the coming ages He might display the immeasurable riches of His grace through His kindness to us in Christ Jesus.
8 For you are saved by grace through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God’s gift — 9 not from works, so that no one can boast.
10 For we are His creation, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared ahead of time so that we should walk in them.
1 Timothy 1:15-17
15 This saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance: “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners”—and I am the worst of them.
16 But I received mercy for this reason, so that in me, the worst of them, Christ Jesus might demonstrate His extraordinary patience as an example to those who would believe in Him for eternal life.
17 Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.
He saved us— not by works of righteousness that we had done, but according to His mercy, through the washing of regeneration and renewal by the Holy Spirit.
Therefore let us approach the throne of grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us at the proper time.
For judgment is without mercy to the one who hasn’t shown mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment.
20 But you, dear friends, as you build yourselves up in your most holy faith and pray in the Holy Spirit,
21 keep yourselves in the love of God, expecting the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ for eternal life.
22 Have mercy on those who doubt;
41 The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will gather from His kingdom everything that causes sin and those guilty of lawlessness.
42 They will throw them into the blazing furnace where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
43 Then the righteous will shine like the sun in their Father’s kingdom. Anyone who has ears should listen!
45 “Who then is a faithful and sensible slave, whom his master has put in charge of his household, to give them food at the proper time?
46 That slave whose master finds him working when he comes will be rewarded.
47 I assure you: He will put him in charge of all his possessions.
48 But if that wicked slave says in his heart, ‘My master is delayed,’
49 and starts to beat his fellow slaves, and eats and drinks with drunkards,
50 that slave’s master will come on a day he does not expect and at an hour he does not know.
51 He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
35 “Be ready for service and have your lamps lit.
36 You must be like people waiting for their master to return from the wedding banquet so that when he comes and knocks, they can open the door for him at once.
37 Those slaves the master will find alert when he comes will be blessed. I assure you: He will get ready, have them recline at the table, then come and serve them.
38 If he comes in the middle of the night, or even near dawn, and finds them alert, those slaves are blessed.
39 But know this: If the homeowner had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have let his house be broken into.
40 You also be ready, because the Son of Man is coming at an hour that you do not expect.”
BLESSED BE THE NAME OF THE LORD – MEDLEY
