Mercy and Truth

“By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the Lord men depart from evil.” Proverbs 16:6 (KJV).

“Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.” Psalm 85:10 (KJV).

Mark 6:34, “And Jesus, when He came out, saw much people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and He began to teach them many things.”

Worship God in Spirit and truth said the worship leader this Sunday morning. (John 4:24). 

Praise You Jesus, for giving me a worship song, “Because He Lives,” in my spirit before church!  When they played it when I arrived among 4 other songs.

Highest Compliment

They say imitation is the highest form of flattery.

“Imitate me, just as I also imitate Christ.

“Now I praise you, brethren, that you remember me in all things and keep the traditions just as I delivered them to you. But I want you to know that the head of every man is Christ, the head of woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.” 1 Corinthians 11:1-3 (NKJV).

“Therefore if there is any encouragement in Christ, if there is any consolation of love, if there is any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and compassion, make my joy complete by being of the same mind, maintaining the same love, united in spirit, intent on one purpose. Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others.

“Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men. Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”               Philippians 2:1-11 (NKJV).
