MESSAGE SUMMARY: We don't deserve God's mercy because we are all sinners, but we come before God for His mercy. Paul tells us so succinctly tells us, in Romans 2:4-5, that without God’s mercy and our repentance we would be facing God’s wrath at judgment: “do you presume on the riches of his kindness and forbearance and patience, not knowing that God's kindness is meant to lead you to repentance? But because of your hard and impenitent heart you are storing up wrath for yourself on the day of wrath when God's righteous judgment will be revealed.". We can never pray or enter God's presence while we are in our pride; we can only enter God's presence if we humble ourselves in Jesus the Christ. Humility and penitence, before God, invite the presence of God -- honesty in action -- here I am, Lord, just as I am; please have mercy on me a sinner.
TODAY’S AFFIRMATION: I affirm that because of what God has done for me in His Son, Jesus, I AM A CHILD OF GOD. Yet to all who received Him, to those who believed in His Name, He gave the right to become children of God-- children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband's will, but born of God. (John 1:12f).

Message Summary: We don’t deserve it, but we come to God because of His Mercy. We are all sinners. As Paul tells us in Romans 9:18: “So then he has mercy on whomever he wills, and he hardens whomever he wills.". We can never enter God’s presence for prayer when we are in our pride. Also, Paul reminds us, in 1 Corinthians 1:30-31, that in our Salvation through Jesus make us “boast” only in the Grace provided us by God: “And because of him you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, righteousness and sanctification and redemption, so that, as it is written, ‘Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.’”. We can only enter God’s presence when we humble ourselves in Jesus. Humility and penitence before God invites His presence – “here I am, Lord; just as I am; have mercy on me a sinner.”.
Today’s Affirmation: Today, I affirm that because I am in Jesus Christ, God is working His will in my life. (Philippians 2:13). “I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.” (Philippians 4:14).
