Mercy is to touch the hem of His Heart…
Mercy infuses…Mercy transforms…weaving one into the garment of His extravagant Love.
The gift received…becomes the gift given.
With the mantle of mercy one is wrapped, drawing all of life under this garment of grace.
Covered under the cloak are those occasions of forgiveness…not that they are forgotten, not an agreement with what was said or done…
But the loose threads of the hurt are carefully rewoven into the garment of grace…in trust…
That one is “filling up what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ on behalf of his body”…
All for a purpose…all for God’s glory.
“And over all these put on love, that is, the bond of perfection. And let the peace of Christ control your hearts, the peace into which you were also called in one body. And be thankful. ” Col 3:14-15.
Mercy received becomes mercy given.
