What Is Mercy?

Uncle Uncle or Mercy Mercy!
 
Playing with my brother as a boy in West Virginia often left me crying uncle. When the playing got a little too rough, the only way out of my brother’s famous leg squeeze was to cry “uncle”–the magic word that set me free!
 
Ecclesiastes 3:1 says there is a time for everything. Today the world has often put the squeeze on us . Hebrews 4:16–Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
 
We often find ourselves standing in that line crying out mercy –“Have mercy upon me, Lord Jesus.” Psalm 34:17 “The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles. The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in Spirit.”
 
Waves of Mercy ministries is reaching the thousands standing in line one at a time. Boys living on the streets of Port-de-Paix; women –bruised reeds– selling their very souls to put food on the table. These are Christians who have fallen and become the broken-hearted. The many crushed in Spirit by the weight of the world. Too many problems to go on and too much religion to end it all… The magic word is no longer uncle, but Christ Jesus.
 
Waves of Mercy is here to introduce the fallen, brokenhearted, and those crushed in Spirit to the love of God. And God is ready to lavish a love upon them unlike anything they have ever known.
