Reflections For Living In Times of Covid19 - Psalm 85:4

Monday May 11, 2020

 

What MERCY! In His deep and eternal love for us, God chooses to not give us what we would rightly deserve: His burning anger and His wrath over our inherent sin and our sinful thoughts and ways. He turns away from His indignation toward us, He withdraws it and puts it away from us - because He already placed it fully on His Son 2000 years ago. What we rightly deserve for our sin, He chose to not place on us, but on Jesus in our stead. What mercy!

 
What GRACE! In His deep and eternal love for us, God chooses to give us what we could never deserve: forgiveness, salvation, and restoration to a full and intimate relationship with Himself. Freedom from the guilt and shame and power of sin in our lives. Redemption from eternal death, and instead the gift of eternal life. The return to our initial transparent communion with Himself. What grace!
 
MERCY: God puts away His indignation toward us. 
 
GRACE: God, our salvation, restores us again.
 
How eternally loved we are!
