Mercy vs. Grace

MERCY withholds the knife from the heart of Isaac.
GRACE provides a ram in the thicket.
     Genesis 22:11-14
MERCY runs to forgive the prodigal.
GRACE throws a party with a robe, a ring, and a fatted calf.
     Luke 15:20-24
MERCY hears the cry of the thief on the cross.
GRACE promises paradise that very day.
     Luke 23:38-43
MERCY converts Paul on the road to Damascus.
GRACE calls him to be the great apostle.
     Acts 9:1-6, 17
MERCY closes the door to hell.
GRACE opens the door to heaven.
     Ephesians 2:8-9
and the difference between mercy and grace is this
MERCY withholds from us what we deserve.
GRACE gives us what we do not deserve.
     Romans 5:20

  1. I love this post and how it fits into your family. My husband and I are also in the process of adopting from Uganda and I believe that I have seen a picture of your beautiful baby girl. I want to tell you she is one of the most breath taking babies I have ever seen. What a wonderful gift!
