I Have God’s Grace, Mercy, and Peace
2 John 1:3
Grace, mercy and peace will be with us, from God the Father and from Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love.
As followers of Christ, God fills our lives with grace, mercy, and peace.
Grace is the unmerited favor of God. Grace is the favor and blessing of God. Grace is getting what you don’t deserve. Salvation is a gift of grace that you don’t deserve and can’t earn.
Your standing as a child of God is not based on how good you are or how hard you try. Salvation is a gift from God received by faith. Salvation is God’s grace lived out in our lives.
If grace is getting what you don’t deserve, mercy is not getting what you do deserve. According to Ephesians 2:4, God is rich in mercy.
God’s mercy sent Jesus into the world to save you from your sin. It is God’s mercy that came up with the idea of salvation in the first place. If we were to receive what we deserve, we should spend eternity separated from the presence of God. It is His mercy and love that opened the door for our salvation.
Mercy doesn’t keep a record of our sin. God’s mercy has removed our sin as far as the east is to the west.
Finally, His Peace is the result of God’s grace and mercy working in your life. Because of His grace and mercy, you have peace with God. The peace of God is the beginning point of all peace. Every aspect of peace in your life flows out of that peace you have with God. When your soul is at peace, every other area of your life can rest in that peace.
Look at today’s promise once again.
