Daily Devotional By Archbishop Foley Beach

God Gives You an Opportunity for His Mercy and Not His Justice

May 30, 2018

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 ChristGod is working His will in my life. (Philippians 2:13). “I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.” (Philippians 4:14).
