“But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, by grace ye are saved.”
Throughout the coming school year, each teacher desires to share more about God’s great love and mercy for us and for our students.
It is exciting to see how God would save the nation of Israel when they would return to Him and worship Him as the only God. He was eager to forgive His people when they would ask for forgiveness. It is only of God’s mercy that any nation is delivered after wicked choices.
We read of one specific example in 2 Samuel 24. After Israel’s greatest king, David, had disobeyed God, David had to suffer the consequences of his actions. King David realized that God’s mercies are always great and asked for those mercies even though he certainly deserved the judgment of God. Indeed, God showed mercy even through a great pestilence on the land of Israel and many lives were saved because of that mercy.
Many of us can share specific examples when God has showed us great mercy as well. We certainly do not deserve the chance for eternal life with Him forever, yet He offers us that great free gift. Even when we fail Him, He rejoices when we return to Him and His will for our lives.
It truly is our privilege to share this great message with our students at LCA regularly and are excited that you have chosen to partner with us in this great effort!
