Desire the Mercy of God – Watchman Nee

Desire the Mercy of God – Watchman Nee

If one’s conscience is willing to confess whatever sins have been committed, including the sin of unbelief, it will be sorrowful in a godly way, earnestly desiring the mercy of God.

God’s Great Mercy – Charles Spurgeon

God’s Great Mercy – Charles Spurgeon

God’s mercy is so great that you may sooner drain the sea of its water, or deprive the sun of its light, or make space too narrow, than diminish the great mercy of God.

The Voice of Forgiveness is Louder – DL Moody

The Voice of Forgiveness is Louder – DL Moody

Then Peter came up and said to him, “Lord, how often will my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times?”  Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you seven times, but seventy-seven times (Matthew 18:21-22).

Peter did not seem to think that he was in danger of falling into sin; his question was, How often should I forgive my brother? But very soon we hear that Peter has fallen. I can imagine that when he did fall, the sweet thought came to him of what the Master had said. The voice of sin may be loud, but the voice of forgiveness is louder.
