Lamentations 3:21-23
This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.

Jeremiah says that the reason he’ll always have hope is because God’s mercies are new every morning.

Psalm 85:10
Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.

This shows the reconciliation between mercy and truth.

Romans 6:23
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

The payment for sin is death.

2 Corinthians 1:3
Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;

We are saved by mercy. Jesus is mercy.

Not only are we saved by His mercy, we are kept by His mercy.

Psalm 30:5
For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

Ephesians 2:1-5
And you hath he quickened , who were dead in trespasses and sins; Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. 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;)

There is never a time that God’s position is not mercy. He is seated in mercy and ready to receive you.

Exodus 25:17 describes the mercy seat. This is where the God’s spirit would sit when it came down on the tabernacle.

It is God’s goodness that leads us to repent. Romans 2:4

Hebrews 4:15-16 says that it is by mercy that we can come before God’s throne of grace, boldly!

In the book of Ruth, Boaz is a type of Christ. He captured Ruth’s attention by setting out handfuls of purpose so that she could glean it. Though she was a Moabite, he redeemed her.

Romans 5:8
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
