Mercy Teaching Notes

Mercy in Our Relationships by Jennifer Waddle
‘‘Just call me Grace!’’ I laughed when I said those words, but my face was red with embarrassment as my broken sandal hung loosely around my twisted ankle. For years, I’d envisioned tripping on stage, but that day it became a reality. The sad part was, I’d tripped over nothing except my own two feet! Despite my turned ankle and skinned knee, I hobbled to the microphone and said lamely, ‘‘Just call me Grace!’’


Looking Back With Mercy - The Landscape of Our Lives by Stasi Eldredge
You know that saying, “Can’t see the forest for the trees”? It means that when you are very near to something, you are unable to see it clearly. Being in close proximity to anything—a situation, a relationship, or your own childhood— can hinder your ability to perceive it correctly. That’s another reason why I love asking God...


Home Is Where the Heart Is…. Formed by Devi Titus
The quote is attributed to Gaius Plinius Secundas - Pliny the Elder - (AD 23 – August 24, AD 79), Como, Italy. Gaius Plinius Secundus (23 AD – August 25, 79 AD), better known as Pliny the Elder, was a Roman author, naturalist, and natural philosopher. Over centuries, a plethora of songs and poetry have been written using this phrase. Art work has been created to hang on our walls, reminding us centuries later that HOME is important. Edward Gibbons said it best...


Obedience in Action by Nicole Unice
Have you ever wished life would give you a do-over? Have you left a conversation with a friend, an argument with your spouse or a conflict at work and thought: man, if only I could rewind and start over! We wish life was more like a DVD player, with fast-forward, rewind and pause buttons built right in. Often, my mouth moves...

The Spirit of the Fear of the Lord by Jamie Rohrbaugh
One time, and one time only, I saw what I can only describe as the ''terror of the Lord'' ... and I thought it was going to kill me. It was several years ago, during a powerful worship service at a church. At that church, during a powerful time of worship, I caught a glimpse of a side of the Lord that I had never encountered before: His terrible-ness. I don't know if it was something about the music, or something about the theme of the service. Whatever it was, somehow, as we were singing to Jesus, deep in my mind's eye I caught just a glimpse of how powerful He is, and how awesome, and how totally other He is...


The Reckoning by Paulette Phillips
Zechariah 2:8 states that anyone who tries to touch Israel touches the apple of God’s eye. Haman was about to pay the consequences for trying to hurt the people of God! After Haman felt the humiliation of leading a parade for Mordecai, Haman’s wife told him that he was beaten and undone. She informed him that he would “never succeed.” But Haman still went to the second banquet full of hope. I wonder if he had a cool exterior or if he was edgy and nervous inside! He likely had no idea that the massacre he had planned for the Jews would never be a reality. Instead, Haman would be destroyed and his name would live on in disgrace forever...


The Invitation by Sheila Wise Rowe
"Whoever drinks the water that I will give him will never be thirsty. The water that I will give him will become in him a well of life that lasts forever." (John 4:14, New Life Version). The Lord has placed within each of us a yearning for this water, and He will accompany us on our Journey to The Well of Life. Yet we struggle to accept that the water Jesus offers will completely satisfy our thirst. God alone is our Healer...


The Crocodile Challenge by Debbie Stuart
Many of you may know the story of Job. The Bible says he was an upright man who feared God. You may not know about the conversation that took place in Chapter 1 about him. The Lord asked Satan if he considered his servant Job to be a great man with complete integrity. Satan replied, “Yes, Job fears you but without good reason because you always protect him and cause him to prosper, take it away and he will curse you.” So the Lord allowed Satan to test Job...


When God is Silent by April Motl
And Jesus went away from there, and withdrew into the district of Tyre and Sidon. And behold, a Canaanite woman came out from that region, and began to cry out, saying, ''Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David; my daughter is cruelly demon-possessed.'' But He did not answer her a word. And His disciples came to Him and kept asking Him, saying, ''Send her away, for she is shouting out after us.'' But He answered and said, ''I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel...


Hope and Belief by Deb Waterbury
Hope is a funny thing, isn’t it? When we get that glimmer of hope, like I mentioned at the end of our study last week, it’s like a fire is lit in us and we begin to plan and move. Joni Earecksen Tada said, “The best we can hope for in this life is a knothole peek at the shining realities ahead. Yet a glimpse is enough. It's enough to convince our hearts that whatever sufferings and sorrows currently assail us aren't worthy of comparison to that which waits over the horizon.”


The Holy Spirit Is Generous! by Jamie Rohrbaugh
In this series about the Holy Spirit, we first talked about the fact that He is God. Then we talked about how the Holy Spirit is a free gift, given to us by Jesus at the moment we are saved! We also talked about how to begin recognizing His presence in our hearts and in our lives as we move throughout our day. Before we begin studying His sevenfold name, we want to look closely at one more aspect of His nature: His generosity! We want to study His beautiful, giving heart, because knowing how generous He is will build our faith to receive the blessings that come with His other names...
