Amazing Grace – Playlist Song #6

Marvelous MercyMERCY …

Merriam-Webster defines mercy as “kind or forgiving treatment of someone who could be treated harshly.” In other words, mercy is an unearned pardon.

In Chain of Mercy, my hero Richard Brooks is granted mercy, but rather than grasp its freedom, he rejects it. By refusing to accept it, he lets mercy shackle him.

This weekend Christians will celebrate God’s Marvelous Mercy–we deserved the punishment for our sin–Jesus didn’t. Yet, Jesus took on all of our sins, from every one of us! God removes our chains and sets us free!

And we celebrate God’s Amazing Grace – the undeserved gift of eternal life. All we have to do is say “Yes!”
