Mercy the Apex of God’s Glory

I hope that what Pastor Toph said on Sunday is still swirling around in your heart. Mercy is the apex of the glory of God. That is an amazing statement to ponder. Think about the various aspects of the glory of God. He is glorious in holiness. He is glorious in strength. He is glorious in wisdom. He is the King of Glory in all of those attributes. Mercy, Pastor Toph unpacked for us, is the highest point of his glory. Consider this week how Ephesians 1:3-6 further describes mercy in the wording of grace as the apex of God’s glory — “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed is in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love he predestined us for adoption to himself as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, TO THE PRAISE OF HIS GLORIOUS GRACE.”
