Showing mercy is having compassion that moves us to action. It’s not a random, occasional impulse at our own convenience, but a self-sacrificing lifestyle in which we act in kindness and provide/speak/encourage forgiveness toward others.
The writer of Psalm 130 does not take the mercy of God for granted. His heart is overwhelmed by a flood of guilt and sin before a holy God. Like the psalmist, we can find that God’s forgiveness is total and freely available today if we confess our sin and cry out to Him.
Isaiah 57:15 For thus says the One who is high and lifted up, who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: “I dwell in the high and holy place, and also with him who is of a contrite and lowly spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly, and to revive the heart of the contrite. (ESV)
