Mercy

I recommend the collected sermons from Thomas Bradbury free from Grace eBooks.

Mercy!Thomas Bradbury

This we find in every part of Divine inspiration. We love to see it in the Book we delight to feel it in our hearts, with the firm persuasion that it is experienced there wholly of the Father’s will and good pleasure, the Saviour’s grace and mediation, and by the revelation of these to our hearts by the Glorifier of God’s Christ God the Holy Ghost. “I will sing of mercy and judgment,” said the Psalmist, “unto Thee, O Lord, will I sing.” (Ps. 101:1) And if some of us live until tomorrow we shall read, no doubt, that blessed new covenant psalm, the 89th, beginning with mercy, flowing with mercy, concluding with mercy, with mercy which never ends. See how mercy is extolled in that 136th Psalm. There at the end of every verse twenty-six times we find ourselves refreshed with mercy, delivered with mercy, preserved, with mercy, guided by mercy, remembered in mercy, redeemed with mercy, fed with mercy, overcome with mercy. “His mercy endureth for ever.”

I love to sing

“A debtor to mercy alone,
Of covenant mercy I sing,
Nor fear with Thy righteousness on,
My person and offerings to bring”

Mercy! What is it? I have endeavoured to point out to you many times that according to the character and state of the persons upon whom God bestows His favour, so is the favour described in the Book. In the writings of John we find that “God is love,” and the church is lovely in Him. He is love from eternal ages to eternal ages. Love shown to His Own in covenant is as He saw them in the Person, perfection, and loveliness of Christ, eternally, unchangeably, unceasingly one with Him.

“Betrothed in love, ere time began,
His blood-bought bride with Jesus see;
Made by eternal union ONE,
Who was, and is, and is to be.”
