Psalm 85:10

 
Mercy and truth have met together; Righteousness and peace have kissed.
Psalm 85:10

One of the incredible things about Jesus is His ability to connect those things which seem contradictory. Christians are often accused of being unmerciful when we tell the Biblical truth about things the world accepts. Yet we should do it in mercy. When Jesus spoke with the woman at the well in John 4, He praised her for telling the truth about not having a husband yet still was able to let her know He knew about her life. Jesus lovingly and mercifully dealt with this woman who had been divorced four times and now lived with another man.

Ephesians 4:15 tells us to speak the truth in love, because that's what Jesus does. We often are harsh in our statements with the excuse that we're just telling the truth. But in giving that truth, the love and mercy of Jesus should shine through our words. Truly in Jesus, mercy and truth have met together.

Watching my words,

Pastor Ron Kitchell
