The Mercy of Jesus

If I were to venture a guess, I’d say that each of has at many times experienced mercy. Jesus demonstrates it in our passage. Mercy is simply God not giving what we deserve. He withholds what we have coming to us, when He has every right to mete out judgment on us. Yet, as we learn from Lamentations 3:22-23 His mercies are extended so that we aren’t consumed. Why? Because He has compassion that never fails. It is unlimited. Why? Because His faithfulness is great. The blind beggar in this passage asked Jesus for mercy. He received more than just his physical sight. He also received healing from His spiritual blindness because in faith he cried out for mercy. If you are in need of God’s mercy, call out to Him, He hears you.
