Love, Mercy, Grace


Yesterday my cousin died. Three words came to mind and in his memory I write.

Love,  Mercy,  Grace


God has many attributes – holy, just, forgiving but above all loving. His actions are for good and not evil. We can understand Him loving good people, but the truth is revealed in the Bible that God loves all the people of the world.


Because God is love, He chooses to withhold judgement so that people have the opportunity to repent – to turn to God, and turn away from sin. Such kindness and pity is not to be despised for He will judge the world by Jesus Christ.


Beyond mercy, the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ desires to give undeserved favour to all humans. The Lord God reaches out to all. To those who receive His Son, He freely gives complete forgiveness, acceptance, sanctification by the Holy Spirit, an inheritance in heaven and a place in the wonderful plans of God. Imagine it , "to be conformed to the image of His Son"!

Notice this is all God's doing. Through the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Lord from heaven, God is reaching out to you today, with Love, Mercy and Grace.

Receive HIM and be saved, redeemed, reconciled, regenerated, sanctified, justified, glorified...!

"God loved the people of this world so much that He gave His only Son, so that everyone who has faith in Him, will not perish, but have eternal life." (John 3:16)
