“Our Merciful, Compassionate Christ!”

“Being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus!” (Philippians 1:6)

“Let us take comfort in the thought that the Lord Jesus does not cast off His believing people because of failures and imperfections. He knows what they are. He takes them, as the husband takes the wife–with all their blemishes and defects; and once joined to Him by faith, He will never leave them. He is a merciful and compassionate High-priest. It is His glory to pass over the transgressions of His people, and to cover their many sins.”
