Mercy can be defined as extreme kindness – and this extreme kindness is God to his people, over and over again


Therefore thus says the Lord God: Now I will restore the fortunes of Jacob, and have mercy on the whole house of Israel; and I will be jealous for my holy name.

Ezekiel 39:25

In its simplest form, mercy can be defined as extreme kindness – and thisextreme kindness is God to his people, over and over again. Even though we sometimes think Christianity is about doing and saying the right things, it’s not. The undeserved mercy of God is the entirety of the story of the Bible.
