Our God sent His precious Son Jesus Christ to die on the cross for our sins. Anyone wishing to experience the mercy of God can come to Him through Jesus Christ for salvation. What a comforting thought! Let us ponder today on the mercy of God and be thankful for God extending His mercy to all of us who have come to Him in repentance. Heavenly Father, as we reflect upon Your mercy, we are so thankful for You sending Your Son Jesus Christ to die in the cross for our sins, and that we can experience Your mercy when we come to salvation in You through Christ.

This entry is part 18 of 24 in the series Tozer-Knowledge of the HolyIn today’s reading, Tozer touches on the justice of God. Our God is just. While it seems today that the wicked are prevailing and that our unjust judges and courts are succeeding, our a God is the ultimate representation of justice. Nothing ever escapes Him. He sees everything, and in His perfect timing, He will exercise His perfect justice. He conquered sin through the atoning death of Christ on the cross, and He will ultimately abolish the presence of sin when He casts Satan into the everlasting lake of fire. Heavenly Father, as we reflect upon Your justice, we are comforted by the fact that You see everything, and that nothing escapes Your perfect justice. We are thankful for You sending Your Son to die on the cross for our sins, and we look forward to the day that you overwhelmingly crush Satan and sin on that blessed day. We are thankful for Your perfect justice. We pray this in Jesus Christ’s name, Amen.
This entry is part 17 of 24 in the series Tozer-Knowledge of the HolyTozer touches on the goodness of God in today’s reading. One Scripture passage that comes to my mind is the incident of Jesus and the rich young ruler when Jesus stated that there was no one good but God. Jesus was both confirming His divinity as God incarnate, as well as telling us that the only reflection of all goodness is God Himself. While we merely throw around the term “good” to define earthly matters that are pleasing to us, in all reality, the only being that can show true goodness is God. Heavenly Father, as we reflect upon Your goodness, we know that You are merciful, just, gracious, and good to us. We acknowledge Your everlasting goodness as the holy God that You are. We thank You for sending Your Son Jesus Christ, God incarnate, to take our sins for us. We pray this in Your Son Jesus Christ’s name, Amen.
