Many people struggle with the concept of mercy. I have always said that mercy is God not giving us what we do deserve.

I think that you will find with these Christian quotes about mercy that God is merciful and does not give us what we rightly should get.

This world is filled with people who do not understand mercy. They are filled with judgment. I have always found that mercy bears richer fruits than strict justice.

We need to become the people of mercy. What we have been given freely should be given away freely.

So take a moment as you read these quotes and sayings about mercy and let God speak to your heart about being a person known for mercy.

Featured Bible Verse About Mercy

James 2:13For judgment is without mercy to the one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment.

18 Christian Quotes On Mercy

The most generous and merciful in judgment upon the faults of others, are always the most free from faults themselves. James H. Aughey

Mercy imitates God, and disappoints Satan. John Chrysostom

Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy. Jesus Christ

Although we have no claim on God’s mercies, and although they are altogether undeserved, nonetheless they never cease. We have done much to provoke God and give Him cause to cut off His mercy in our behalf. We have abused His mercy, ignored His mercy, even at times ungratefully accepted His mercy. Still, while God’s mercies may not always be visible, they are always present. The mercies of God may change their form, as the morning light varies from the evening light, but the mercies of God will never cease to give their light. Even chastisement is mercy in disguise; and frequently, under the circumstances which make chastisement necessary, it proves to be more merciful than if God had not chastised us at all. Woodrow Kroll

Prayer is the midwife of mercy, that helps to bring it forth. Matthew Henry

Happy are those whose self-centered lives have been crushed and reshaped by the Master’s hand to be full of mercy. John Hagee

The difference between mercy and grace? Mercy gave the prodigal son a second chance. Grace gave him a feast. Max Lucado

There is not a flower that opens, not a seed that falls into the ground, and not an ear of wheat that nods on the end of its stalk in the wind that does not preach and proclaim the greatness and the mercy of God to the whole world. Thomas Merton

Kings in this should imitate God, their mercy should be above their works. William Penn

If we have no zeal for the glory of God our mercy must be superficial, man-centered human improvement with no eternal significance. And if our zeal for the glory of God is not a reveling in his mercy, than our so-called zeal, in spite of all its protests, is our of touch with God and hypocritical. John Piper

God’s mercy with a sinner is only equalled and perhaps outmatched by His patience with the saints, with you and me. Alan Redpath

The Gospel is good news of mercy to the undeserving. The symbol of the religion of Jesus is the cross, not the scales. John Stott

Fight the good fight of faith, and God will give you spiritual mercies. George Whitefield

No sin is so great but the satisfaction of Christ and His mercies are greater; it is beyond comparison. Fathers and mothers in tenderest affections are but beams and trains to lead us upwards to the infinite mercy of God in Christ. Richard Sibbes

Do you wish to commune with God in your mind? Strive to be merciful… A man should first of all begin to be merciful in the measure that our heavenly Father is merciful. Isaac of Syria

Mercy is like the rainbow, which God hath set in the clouds; it never shines after it is night – If we refuse mercy here, we shall have justice in eternity. Jeremy Taylor

God’s mercy to us is the motivation for showing mercy to others. Remember, you will never be asked to forgive someone else more than God has forgiven you. Rick Warren

The most miserable prison in the world is the prison we make for ourselves when we refuse to show mercy. Warren Wiersbe

Final Thoughts About Mercy And Compassion

All of us who have received mercy from Jesus should be the hands of mercy back to hurting people.

No matter if they are the worst of sinners or they think they are the holiest of saints, they all need the mercy of God.

Please take a moment to meditate on who you have been less than merciful to and ask God to help you start to be an instrument of His mercy to them.

I think that if you do, you will find that you receive even more signs of God’s mercy towards you in the process.
