The Transforming Power of Mercy
Jesus said in Matthew 9:13, I desire mercy and not sacrifice. Do we fully understand this truth? We often ask God to forgive us, but we do not have faith in His desire for mercy. Instead we bargain with God for forgiveness and put ourselves on probation. We must cooperate with the only thing that will give us freedom and enable us to love God wholeheartedly: mercy. In this two-part teaching, Allen Hood takes us on a journey of learning how to cooperate with God's mercy. He shows that it can transform the heart and empower us to reach mature love; for the heart won through tenderness and mercy can endure the darkest seasons of life.
