I stumbled across some older videos last night, and rediscovered a short clip that really delves in to the history of God’s mercy. It was a great reminder to me about the depth and riches of the mercy of God.
The message of the video, which I have shared before in the past is always a good reminder of our position with our Christ, when we choose him (for he already has chosen us!) – and that position is – forgiven, free and family.
1-2 So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you. (Romans 12:1-2, The Message)
