Luke 1:50 His mercy is upon generation after generation toward those who fear Him.
Starting a short series on the text known as the Magnificat (from it's first word in Latin), this is how God views His people. God has mercy - looks with favour upon - generations of people in turn so long as they remain in awe of Him. Perhaps we can hear an echo of God's self proclamation to Moses at Mt. Sinai:
Exodus 34:6-7 The LORD, the LORD, a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness, keeping steadfast love for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin.
Are you receiving God's mercy today?
