The Gospel of His Great Mercy

But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus... (Ephesians 2:4-6)

“Then the LORD came down in the cloud and stood there with him and proclaimed his name, the LORD. And he passed in front of Moses, proclaiming, “The LORD, the LORD, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness, maintaining love to thousands, and forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the children and their children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation.”

Join me this Sunday morning as we seek to more fully understand the gospel of great mercy that our compassionate and gracious God has revealed to us in the Holy Scriptures. He is slow to anger and abounding in love and faithfulness, He is love, and the embodiment of forgiveness, grace, and justice.

Come to worship!
