Character of God: Moved With Mercy

God is perfectly compassionate and righteous. Our willful separation from Him has resulted in ruining our lives. This breaks His heart. God is Love. His nature is to always be more concerned with our welfare than His own, so He reaches into this realm of our existence with light and truth. Our confusion, pain and fear are not too difficult for Him to deliver us from. He can restore all of creation to its rightful state. He makes all things new. God wants every person to know Him and to live in intimate friendship with Him so that we can live into the dream He has for our lives. Throughout history God has called out to everyone that we should come to Him so that He can rescue us.  He takes away our fear because He will give us hope for our lives, and a future with Him forever.

Exodus 34:6-7 “I am the LORD, I am the LORD God, compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in loving kindness and truth; Who keeps loving kindness for thousands, Who forgives iniquity, transgression and sin.”

Isaiah 55:1-5
Ho! Everyone who thirsts,
Come to the waters;
And you who have no money,
Come, buy and eat.
Yes, come, buy wine and milk
Without money and without price.
2 Why do you spend money for what is not bread,
And your wages for what does not satisfy?
Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good,
And let your soul delight itself in abundance.
3 Incline your ear, and come to Me.
Hear, and your soul shall live;
