Delight rather in clemency

July 24, 2018 6:19 am

“Who is there like you, the God who removes guilt and pardons sin for the remnant of his inheritance; Who does not persist in anger forever, but delights rather in clemency, and will again have compassion on us, treading underfoot our guilt? You will cast into the depths of the sea all our sins; You will show faithfulness to Jacob, and grace to Abraham, as you have sworn to our fathers from days of old.” (MI 7: 18-20)

This is our God, Who “does not persist in anger forever, but delights rather in clemency, and will again have compassion on us.” His first reaction to our weakness and fragility is to “cast into the depths of the sea all our sins.” We are His beloved children, and He wants all the best for us.

“Whoever loves me will keep my word, and my Father will love him and we will come to him.”
