Exodus 34:6-7; Titus 3:4-6; 1 Peter 1:3; 1 John 2:1-2; 4:9-10
In this is love, not that we have loved God but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
A king’s servant owed him an enormous debt. The debt was so great, the servant would never be able to repay it. The king chose to forgive the servant his debt out of his mercy. The servant received mercy, but he did not show the same mercy to another servant who owed him money. We have all been shown mercy by God and we should show mercy to others.
Thankfully, God does not just leave us in the broken world, but is repairing the brokenness through His Son. From the very beginning of time, God promised He would fix creation, and He kept His promise by sending Jesus to rescue us from our sin. Jesus came to live on the earth and willingly died on the cross so that sin’s power over creation would be broken forever.
