His merciful kindness is great towards us


"His merciful kindness is great towards us!" Psalm 117:2

All the kindness of the Lord towards us is indeed "merciful" for we have rebelled against Him—we have sinned, and we have done wickedly.

Had He dealt with us after our sins , or repaid us according to our iniquities—He would have shown us no kindness, but would have banished us from His presence, and consigned us to "the blackness of darkness forever!"

How great, then, is His merciful kindness towards us! It is so great that we cannot think or speak of it aright—it is unutterable! "Herein is love—not that we loved God, but that He loved us, and sent His Son to be the atoning sacrifice for our sins."

And when we came to Him burdened with guilt—He received us graciously. He not only forgave our transgressions—but adopted us into His family! "Behold, what manner of love the Father has bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God!"

And how manifold are the proofs of His merciful kindness that follow in the train of the greatest manifestations of His love—if I would attempt to count them, they are more than can be numbered!

"What shall I render unto the Lord for all His benefits towards me? I will take the cup of salvation, and call on the name of the Lord!"

"When all Your mercies, O my God,
  My rising soul surveys;
  Transported with the view, I'm lost
  In wonder, love, and praise!"
