“By the Mercies of God” pastor Loran Livingston
We are all living only because of the mercies of God. So let us rejoice in the Lord and praise Him for His endless mercies, and let us humble ourselves while living our lives in the way that pleases the Lord and for the Glory of God, knowing that we live only because of God’s grace and His mercy to us and because of His endless and unconditional love to us.
Romans 12: 1-3: “Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you. “
