Dear members and friends of St. Peter's Anglican Church,
The peace of the Lord be always with you.
" BLESSED ARE THE MERCIFUL..."
In Matthew 5:7, we read: "Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy." To be merciful means to be compassionate, loving, kind and forgiving to all people. In sending Jesus Christ to save us by his death on the cross, God has demonstrated his love, kindness and forgiveness to the whole world. All people who believe in Jesus are expected to do as God has done to them.
Colossians 3:12-14 says: 12 Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. 13 Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. 14 And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
May God bless you with your families and friends and protect you in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.
