Mercy and Grace

            Mercy & Grace
From the pen of Dr David Jeremiah

Mercy withholds the knife
   from the heart of Isaac.
Grace provides a ram from 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 23:39-43 

Mercy converts Paul on the 
    road to Damascus.
Grace calls him to be 
    the great apostle.
            Acts 9:6, 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 
withholds from us what we deserve
gives us what we do not deserve.
         Romans 5:20

Reader, I needed a bookmark which my husband supplied.
Then, I took a good long look and fell in love once more
with my dear Savior.

A friend sent me a video of a woman who died on the
operating table. This is her experience.

Our Lord is coming soon! Are you ready?
