Weak Made StrongChris Kiger The blood of Jesus Christ is the reason mercy triumphs over judgment. The entire theme of the Bible is that mercy is administered in Christ. In the Beatitudes, Jesus proclaims, “Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.” (Matthew 5:7 NIV) God expects us to be merciful rather than judgmental. We all sin and fall short of God’s glory, but the sacrificial death of Jesus made a way for us to be forgiven and saved. We must lift others up and help them to become stronger in Christ and understand this gift He has given us.
