Our relationship with Jesus Christ is a merciful one, in fact it is based upon mercy. Jesus Himself saw to that by going to the cross so that our sins might be forgiven. He is the one who made it possible for us to draw near to God; to approach his throne.
Remember, O Lord, your great mercy and love,
for they are from of old.
Remember not the sins of my youth
and my rebellious ways;
according to your love remember me,
for you are good, O Lord.
In many relationships, we have difficulty approaching others because we have hurt or offended them… how will they react? With our relationship with Jesus, He has already forgiven us; we can approach in praise and thanksgiving.
We may approach Him for His guidance, His mercy and His love… we will truly be missing out if we neglect such a great relationship.
May we never neglect our relationship with our Lord, that relationship which is so very wonderful.
