Compassionate and Gracious - God Has A Name, Ep. 4
In God’s economy, things are not about what we deserve. Why? Because God is compassionate and gracious… The universe runs on grace, even for the people we don’t like, even for the people that have hurt us, even for the people that have broken our hearts, the universe runs on grace. And when you understand that, your life can change. This is the message of the cross: that Jesus came into the world to give Himself, not based on anything that we have ever done to deserve it, salvation is not about deserving.
Passage: 6 The Lord passed before him and proclaimed, “The Lord, the Lord, a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness, 7 keeping steadfast love for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, but who will by no means clear the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children and the children's children, to the third and the fourth generation.”
