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.
2 John 1:3
Grace, Mercy and Peace
Today we are looking at three powerful things God has promised to you. 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 that is received by faith. Salvation is God’s grace lived out in your life.
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 you were to receive what you deserve, you would be separated from the presence of God for all eternity. It is His mercy and love that opened the door for your salvation.
Mercy doesn’t keep a record of your sin. God’s mercy has removed your 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 that promise again.
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. – 2 John 1:3
Make these confessions.
God’s grace is with me today.
His grace drew me to Himself and brought about my salvation.
God’s mercy is flowing over me today.
His mercy has forgiven my sin and made me new in Him.
Because of God’s grace and mercy, I have peace with Him today.
In Jesus Name,
God’s mercy and grace come together to bring about God’s peace in your life.
