As we look into the future, we see

an emotionally healthy church

filled with fully-surrendered Christ-followers

whose hearts are set ablaze to

act justly

love mercy and

walk humbly with God.

Love Mercy

Mercy 

mer·cy

noun

1. compassion or forgiveness shown toward someone whom it is within one’s power to punish or harm.

“the boy was screaming and begging for mercy”

synonyms: leniency, lenience, clemency, compassion, grace, pity, charity, forgiveness, forbearance, quarter, humanity, humaneness, humanitarianism;

I have heard it said that mercy is not receiving that which I do deserve, in a the best way possible. Often paired with Grace, the way I understand these two terms in the God context is:

Grace = God gives you what you don’t deserve.

Mercy = God doesn’t give you what you do deserve.
