Mercy is God’s unmerited favor, however, in the new covenant it takes on an added meaning. Mercy, for the church, is the right to continue in the life of Christ. It is the unmerited favor we receive just to experience God daily. It is the permission or the approval that God gives you to allow you to walk in the power of Christ. It is when God says, “OK”. “Ok, you get strength, power, authority, peace, love, wisdom, knowledge, understanding, health...etc.”
Seeing that mercy is the God-given approval to walk in the life of Christ, we should pray for it. We should ask God to give us mercy each and every day.
