Mercy Seat

mercy seat

The cherubim spread out their wings above, overshadowing the mercy seat with their wings, with their faces one to another; toward the mercy seat were the faces of the cherubim.

Exodus 37:9

Mercy needed:

born a sinner

and choosing to rebel

living with the damage

of what hurt when Adam fell

I need mercy.

Mercy provided:

God reached out to sinners

who did not have a prayer

and those who could not be holy

at the cross found forgiveness there

God gave mercy.

Mercy received:

by one such pardoned soul

mercy is forever my miracle -- life obtained

through Jesus’ death born anew forever

God’s mercy is how I am sustained

I found mercy.
