Two works of mercy set a man free:  forgive and you will be forgiven, and give and you shall receive.

From Matthew 5:43-45:  “You have heard it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’  But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be children of your Father in Heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the righteous and on the unrighteous.”

Go to the Jordan and you find the Trinity.  There at the baptism of Jesus, the three persons in the Godhead are simultaneously in evidence.

From Matthew 3:16-17:  “And when Jesus had been baptized, just as He came up from the water, suddenly the heavens were opened to Him and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on Him.  And a voice from heaven said, ‘This is My Son, the Beloved, with whom I am well pleased.'”
