Well of Mercy 

Matthew 6:12  Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who have trespassed against us.

When we pray the Lord’s Prayer, we ask God to extend His mercy to us to forgive our sins and to extend His mercy through us to forgive others.  God is the deep well of mercy.  We draw from His compassion to truly be forgiven and forgive.  The process of forgiveness takes honesty and transparency  before God, and we need God’s grace manifested in us to pour out to others.  Because of the grace we’ve received through reconciliation in Christ, we are free from the entrapment of unforgiveness.  God’s great mercy initiates our freedom from sin and invites us to freely extend His grace to others. What joy it is to drink from His well of mercy until our cup is overflowing and enjoy more than enough mercy to share with others!
