MERCY withholds the knife from the heart of Isaac.
GRACE provides a ram in the thicket.
MERCY runs to forgive the prodigal.
GRACE throws a party with a robe, a ring, and a fatted calf.
MERCY hears the cry of the thief on the cross.
GRACE promises paradise that very day.
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.
and the difference between mercy and grace is this
MERCY withholds from us what we deserve.
GRACE gives us what we do not deserve.
