Two Glorious Gifts

By grace you have been saved.
             —Ephesians 2:5

Do you know the difference between mercy and grace? Mercy abstains from giving us the condemnation that we deserve; grace gives us the salvation that we don’t deserve.

God delights to show mercy (Mi 7:18). “He does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities” (Ps 103:10).

“It is by grace you have been saved . . . it is the gift of God” (Eph 3:8)

Deeper than the ocean and wider than the sea,
Is the grace of the Savior for sinners like me.

Now I’m under His control
and I’m happy in my soul,
Just to know that His grace reaches me.
—Whitey Gleason

Thank God for his mercy.
Praise God for his grace.
