Commentary from Pastor Michael White:

Who is a God like You, pardoning iniquity and passing over the transgression of the remnant of His heritage? He does not retain His anger forever, because He delights in mercy. – Micah 7:18

God is good! He doesn’t just forgive you because He has to; He forgives you because He wants to! God delights in showing mercy. It breaks His heart when men and women refuse to turn to Him; but His heart delights when people who are far from Him say yes to Jesus Christ.

Mercy is the cancellation of bad; grace is the activation of good. Mercy means you don’t get the punishment you deserve; and grace means you do get the reward Jesus deserves! Because of the Cross, you are forgiven. Because God poured out His wrath on Jesus, there is no wrath – only mercy – left for you!


Father, thank You for Your mercy! I know You are a good God. You delight in showing mercy! Thank You for Your relentless pursuit of my life.
