      The offer of mercy is a godly wake-­up call. Mercy creates an opportunity for repentance and forgiveness. We must never take God’s mercy for granted.  According to Romans 12:1, it was on the basis of God’s mercies that Paul built his case for each of us to offer our bodies as living sacrifices. Because of mercy, we should feel compelled to give up our whole life in service back to God. While mercy indeed emerges from grace, it culminates in repentance and transformation, not just forgiveness. God offers His abundant mercy, not necessarily to hinder justice or delay righteous judgment, but as a way to touch the heart. Judgment without mercy may very well do the opposite and harden, rather than soften, the heart. Mercy, on the other hand, triumphs over judgment in that it has the power to sincerely alter one’s rebellious and defiant heart. Not everyone who is offered mercy allows their heart to change, but more often than not, they do. Mercy is an incredible force that when utilized, has an awesome power and innate ability to get results when all else fails.
