Final Moments - Love Mercy

What would you have done better this Advent? Take that and bring it into the Christmas season.

"Ok, Lord.. please bring a greater good out of my negligence and weakness."

His mercy is glorified when it is called upon and that is why Divine Mercy took flesh; to be called upon.

"Everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved" as the Scripture says.

As we are beginning the journey of this Year of Mercy we ought to call upon Mercy.  Ask Mercy Himself to do everything for you which you yourself cannot do.  Realize, too, that what we cannot do is... everything.

"Apart from Me you can do nothing" Jesus says in John's Gospel.

Are you trying to do something apart from the Lord? Know that, if this is the case, it won't bear fruit. At least, not any kind of healthy, spiritually nutritious fruit for you or anyone else. However, if you bring all you do to the Lord then Mercy will make you a true disciple who bears much fruit.

The Tree of Life is beginning to blossom the fruit of the Savior; the Savior Himself.  The Tree of Life  is the source of Mercy for us.  Bloom where you are planted. Root yourself in Mercy this Christmas.

"For we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose." (Romans 8:28)

Love Him.  Love Mercy. All will be well because all will be His when we give all to Him.  Become a gift of self to Mercy this Christmas.  Give yourself over.  Love Mercy.

"Seek justice, love mercy, walk humbly with your God." (Micah 6:8)

Merry Christmas!
