Mercy = loving kindness, forgiveness and good will towards us.
Grace = joy, liberality, kindness, favor, blessings, gifts and rewards to us.
God longs to exchange our brokenness and pain for His grace and mercy. In Hebrews 4:16 we are exhorted “to come boldly to the throne of our gracious God.” That is a call and privilege that has been granted to us because our great advocate, Jesus Christ, has walked this earth and also walked the halls of heaven like no other person. Our great God has made a way for us by sending His Son to be the ransom for our sins. Now that He has died for us, He lives for us, ever making His perfect plea of grace and mercy for us to His Father who sits on the throne. We now can come to Heaven’s throne in prayer knowing that Jesus stands with us, perfecting and delivering our prayers into the hands of our Father.
Mercy and Grace are yours for the taking. Be encouraged, come boldly before Heaven’s throne in the name of Jesus and find grace and mercy for your need.
