“Do You Want Grace, Mercy, and Peace?”Categories: Baptism, Compassion, Faith, Grace, Mercy, Peace, Salvation
“Grace, mercy, and peace will be with us, from God the Father and from Jesus Christ the Father's Son, in truth and love.” (2 John 3, ESV)
- Grace: God’s favor toward sinners; giving us what we don’t deserve (salvation).
- Mercy: God’s compassion for sinners; not giving us what we deserve (death).
- Peace: When we are in fellowship with God because of His grace and mercy and our faith.
We can have all these spiritual blessings and more that are given from the Father and His Son when we obey God in faith. Express your faith in Him today by repenting of the sins in your life (a change of mind and will – no longer practicing sin) (Acts 17.30-31), confessing your faith (that Christ is the Son of God) (Rom. 10.9-10), and being baptized for the forgiveness of your sins (Acts 22.16). Only then will Grace, mercy, and peace be upon you!
