Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy (Matthew 5:7).
In Scripture, blessed means happy, a type of contentedness, a divine satisfaction, an inner peace, a state of restfulness that is not created from or affected by circumstances or emotions that are ever-changing. It is a state of well-being and inner joy, rooted and grounded in the truth of Jesus Christ, who never changes. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8). Jesus contrasts the world’s definition of happiness with true blessedness, which is spiritual prosperity, having the gift of eternal life. This only comes from having a right relationship with God through faith in Christ (Romans 5:1).
Being merciful speaks of believers who understand the mercy they have been shown by God through trusting in Jesus for the forgiveness of sins; ultimately for being saved from God’s eternal wrath to come – the mercy of all mercies. Since God has been merciful to those who put their trust in Christ, believers will naturally respond with an attitude of mercy towards others, which is an outward expression and evidence of their inward faith in Jesus.
Mercy is when we don’t receive what we deserve (hell), whereas grace (God’s unmerited favor and kindness towards sinners) is when we receive what we don’t deserve (eternal life). because judgment without mercy will be shown to anyone who has not been merciful. Mercy triumphs over judgment (James 2:13).
The greatest act of mercy that God performs is giving the gift of faith.” - R.C. Sproul
