"He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy." Proverbs 28:13
I am constantly reminded of the "Amazing Mercy" of our Lord God. He has not only prepared the only pathway to the forgiveness of sins through His Son Jesus Christ, but has given us the assurance that we can continue to have our sins forgiven by His mercy. As amazing as His Grace is, so is the truth concerning the twin sister of grace, and that is mercy. Grace is God giving us what we cannot deserve and mercy is God not giving us what we really deserve. How awesome that our Lord has perfectly balanced these two magnificent truths in the life of believers in order to maintain fellowship with those that have trusted Him for salvation and continue to trust Him for unbroken fellowship. Please don’t over look the truth that not only must we confess our sins, but also FORSAKE them in order to receive God’s mercy.
