The Gift of Mercy
We have diverse gifts according to the grace that is given to us… he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness.
– Romans 12:6, 8
When someone is anointed by the Holy Spirit with the gift of mercy, they are
filled with the compassion and grace of Christ to help those who are afflicted
and in need of help. Not only is their heart filled with compassion for those
in need, but when they have the opportunity to minister to someone in need,
they do it with a spirit of joy and cheerfulness that lifts the needy person
out of the pit of despair.
The gift of mercy is manifested by the Holy Spirit to bring light into darkness.
For You will cause my lamp to shine; the LORD my God will enlighten my
darkness (Proverbs 18:28).
This gift is not just pity where you feel sorry for someone in need. This gift
empowers the recipient of the gift to spring into action at a moment’s notice
and make a difference in someone’s life. They are able to put themselves in
the shoes of the person in need and treat them as they would want to be
treated. Do unto others as you would have others do unto you. (Luke 6:31).
Holy Spirit, let mercy flow through me like a river today.

- John 14:15-31
- Psalm 119:33-48
- Proverbs 15:33
