Why We Worship 9


I am taking time each week to ask myself "Why we worship"


Today I want to look at God's Mercy.


Mercy is "not getting what you deserve". 


ie.  It is like a judge finding you guilty of a crime, but then not administering any punishment.

The Bible tells us that God is Merciful towards us.




So God shows us his mercy by not giving us the punishment we deserve.  
The punishment we should receive because of the sin in our lives.
The Punishment which should be death and complete separation from God.

This is a compelling reason for us to worship God and give Him thanks.



Thank you God that you are a merciful God.

Can you pray this along with me?
