God's Mercy Is Paramount for A Successful Relationship With Him

As people, we usually have little mercy on people.  Our motto seems to be don't get mad...get even.
Although the Bible makes it clear that God is the great Judge who hates all evildoing
and who will eventually judge all of us, he is also the merciful God who forgives and
accept people who turn to him.

Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.  
1Chronicles 16:34(NKjV)

Let the wicked forsake his way, And the unrighteous man his thoughts; Let him
return to the LORD, And He will have mercy on him; And to our God, For
He will abundantly pardon.  Isaiah 55:7 (NKJV)

"Say to them: 'As I live,' says the Lord GOD, 'I have no pleasure in the
death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live. Turn,
turn from your evil ways! For why should you die, O house of Israel?'  
Ezekiel 33:11 (NKJV)

But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved
us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with
Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and
made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,  
Ephesians 2:4-6 (NKJV)

Who is a God like You, Pardoning iniquity And passing over the
transgression of the remnant of His heritage? He does not retain His anger
forever, Because He delights in mercy.  He will again have compassion on
us, And will subdue our iniquities. You will cast all our sins Into the depths
of the sea.  Micah 7:18-19 (NKJV)

"What do you think? If a man has a hundred sheep, and one of them goes astray, does he
not leave the ninety-nine and go to the mountains to seek the one that is straying?  "And if
he should find it, assuredly, I say to you, he rejoices more over that sheep than over the
ninety-nine that did not go astray.  "Even so it is not the will of your Father who is in heaven
that one of these little ones should perish.  Matthew 18:12-14 (NKJV)

"Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of
refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, "and that He may send Jesus Christ,
who was preached to you before,  
Acts 3:18-20 (NKJV)

not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us,
through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit,  Titus 3:5 (NKJV)

Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace
to help in time of need.  Hebrews 4:16 (NKJV)
