Let, I pray thee, thy merciful kindness be for my comfort, according to thy word unto thy servant. Let thy tender mercies come unto me, that I may live: for thy law is my delight. Psalm 119:76-77
Though the demands of God’s law condemn us for our many shortcomings, God promises mercy and forgiveness to those who look to Him in faith, trusting in the atoning sacrifice of Christ Jesus, God the Son made man. Though the law condemns us to eternal death and torment, God’s tender mercies in Christ comfort us and give us life eternal.
Comfort me, O God, with Your merciful kindness in Christ Jesus. Let Your tender mercies give me life through faith in my Savior. Amen.
