In the Person of our adorable Redeemer, we behold mercy incarnate. This was the garb in which the whole of His other virtues were arrayed; the soft luster with which they were all surrounded and adorned.
Such was the character of Jesus in the days of His flesh, and such is it still. He with whom we have to do, whose favor we implore, and whose blessings we supplicate, far from being a harsh, unfeeling Master is a loving Savior and compassionate Friend. His heart is a fountain of mercy, and its streams are perpetually flowing!
