Last night in our weekly small group meeting, we studied one of the attributes of God which is being merciful.
Upon pondering my take home last night…
Justice – you get what you deserve
Mercy – you don’t get what you deserve
Grace – you get what you don’t deserve
Just imagine if God is only just but not merciful and gracious…
How will we be able to live?
There’s no even point living because we will totally be separated from God – eternally.
Because God being just means all of us are bound for hell forever. We will never be able to live up to His standards.
But because God is merciful, He sent His Son Jesus to take the penalty of our sins.
And because God is gracious, He gives us salvation and eternal life through Jesus even if we don’t deserve it.
Do you want to live not just for now but eternally with God?
Just one thing…
Believe, have faith in Jesus. Let Jesus not just be your Savior but also the Master of your life.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. – John 3:16
Isn’t it amazing how one decision can totally impact your eternal destination?
