November 29 Echoes of Eternity
. . . that in me first Jesus Christ might show forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on Him to life everlasting.
I Timothy 1:16
I am the God of mercy. Your life, My child, is a manifestation of it. You have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you, and set My mercy upon you. In a vessel such as you are—weak, unstable, hidden, and high-minded—only My mercy can bring forth any lasting good. The unlovable elements in your nature work against that mercy— war against it—striving for ascendancy and recognition. They are
always self-defeating. They produce their own punishment. But My mercies fail not. And your life is meant to show the fruit which grows from both. Let mercy prevail!
