From Mercy to Mission – Part I

Have you ever thought you might be missing out on something big because you feel unqualified or disqualified from being used by God? This week, we continue our series on the Magnificent Mercy of God, exploring how God’s mercy enables Him to use anyone—yes, anyone—including you!

Last week, we started unraveling the overwhelming concept of God’s mercy, understanding it as undeserved forgiveness and unearned kindness. We discussed how mercy can transform our lives, replacing shame with forgiveness, disappointment with possibility, and fear with eternal assurance. This week, we dive into how God’s mercy makes it possible for Him to use anybody for His purposes, no matter their past or perceived inadequacies.  Join us as we see that your past mistakes or lack of qualifications don’t limit God’s ability to work through you. This is not just about learning; it’s about transforming how we see ourselves and our role in God’s plan. Don’t miss out!


  1. How does understanding God’s mercy change your view of your own mistakes and past failures?
  2. Can you share a time when you felt disqualified from being used by God? How does the concept of mercy speak into that feeling?
  3. What does it mean to you that God uses “imperfect people”? Can you think of examples from your own life or others where this has been evident?
  4. Discuss the statement, “Every saint has a past, and every sinner has a future.” How does this reflect the nature of God’s mercy?
  5. How can we cultivate a community that openly shares weaknesses and supports each other’s growth, rather than hiding behind masks?
  6. In what ways can being real and authentic draw others closer to God? Share personal experiences if any.
  7. Discuss the role of mercy in overcoming the fear of being real with others about who you are.
  8. How does Paul’s transformation from a persecutor of Christians to a proponent of the faith influence your understanding of God’s capacity to use anyone?
  9. Reflect on the barriers that prevent you from accepting or acknowledging God’s mercy. How can you begin to overcome these obstacles?
  10. What practical steps can we take to remind ourselves daily of God’s mercy, especially when we feel inadequate or unworthy?
