Sunrise James 2:12

God, who is completely holy, has all authority and wisdom to render perfect judgement. And everyone one of us would be found lacking due to our sin condition. We are all unworthy of His favor.

However, God also embodies mercy, defined as “compassion or forgiveness shown toward someone whom it is within one’s power to punish or harm”. 

Love, expressed as compassionate mercy, is a virtue greater than righteousness.

10 For if a person could keep all of the laws and yet break just one; it would be like breaking them all. 11 The same God who said, “Do not commit adultery,”[also says, “Do not murder.” If you break either of these commands, you’re a lawbreaker,no matter how you look at it. 12 So live your life in such a way that acknowledges that one day you will be judged. But the law that judges also gives freedom, 13 although you can’t expect to be shown mercy if you refuse to show mercy. But hear this: mercy always wins against judgment! Thank God! James 2:10-13 The Voice

So believe and receive the heavenly reward of mercy from God, then extend that same gift to others.

About These #SUNRISE #WORSHIP DEVOTIONALS: A daily “worship ritual” I practice is to listen to The Daily Audio Bible podcast, take a photo of the morning sky, find a meaningful scripture or quote (usually from the DAB), and share it on Instagram/Facebook/Twitter. Please comment and share! The Lord bless you.
