But God is so rich in mercy, and he loved us so much, that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God’s grace that you have been saved!)”
Ephesians 2:4-5 NLT
God is so generous in His dispensation of mercy.
“It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.”
Lamentations 3:22-23 KJV
Can you imagine what life would be like, if there would be life at all, without God's mercy? His mercy withholds the punishment we so deserve and allows His grace to be imparted instead. This reality ought to make us shout to the top of our lungs the greatness of God!!!
By grace we are saved!!!!!!!
Do you grasp that truth? If you do, it will change your life. Eternally! Literally!
