A place for me to share my notes and thoughts from my time with the Lord.
Mercy is not being given the punishment you deserve.
Grace is being given something that you do not deserve.
God gives us mercy by not giving us death (which we deserve).
He gives us grace by giving us life (which we do not deserve).
To deserve is to be worthy of something.
We deserve death because we are sinners. But despite this, God did not give us death (mercy), but instead gave us life even though we did not deserve it (grace).
Lord, thank-You for giving me eternal life, even though I definitely don’t deserve it. It’s an amazing gift. Help me to give mercy and grace as You do. Amen.
