Mercy is unmerited favor, not getting what we deserve. Story of my life. Story of all our lives if we are alive in Christ.
It’s not really something we can fully comprehend, and we shouldn’t, because if we did, we’d be God.
It’s one of those things where you ask God, How could you love me? And not punish me according to what my sins deserve? And the answer is, Because I love you. Because.
Sometimes a frustrating answer, but an answer that still gives peace.
