Hello grace, The difference between God's grace and mercy is there is no difference. God has mercy on us through his grace. God's grace is why he sent his son to die on the cross so that if we accept Jesus, the mercy he has shown by doing this allows us to spend eternity with him in heaven.
But God also show Grace towards man in the OT before Jesus died on the cross. But I agree with you that we recieve grace because of what Jesus did.
I was just using that as an example my friend.
JThomo42- Thank you , you answer is very helpful to me. God bless
I sometimes see it as the one being active while the other passive. God's grace empowers us and mercy calms us, bringing us peace.
The difference between "Grace" and "Mercy" is that Grace is getting what you don't deserve (gift, leniency, forgiveness), while Mercy is not getting what you deserve (punishment). Hope this helps. :0)
CJ Sladgehammer- I do believe this is what I was looking for.
Blessing to you.
It was my pleasure and I am glad I could help.
Very true !! That's exactly how I would explain it too !
I believe that they both have one thing in common. They show us who God truly is. A God of absolute love.
To me; God's Grace...is when I obtain 'blessings' special to me or over something I am trying to accomplish and ask for his help. His 'will' to intervene in a situation that has become difficult of giving me spiritual strength to 'not to give' up. God's Mercy..to me. is for me to ask in a Act of Contrition, to pray to God and ask for forgiveness of my 'sins'. In hope of receiving his 'favor' in my life and in the lives of my loved ones.
lostohanababy- I believe Mercy can be defined as withholding punishment that is well deserved. Whereas grace is a form of pardon or forgiveness of sins that is not deserved. CJ Sledgehammer answer has described it very well. Thanks for your answer..

Do we, as christians, understand God's grace or do we underestimate it?Sometimes when I hear or read others explain the power of God's grace, that there is far more to it that what is explained. Jesus Christ was full of grace but never tough on it or did He?. He demonstrated many acts of grace. Do...

Grace is a fascinating subject. I believe that the Bible is the only book that promotes it as a characteristic of God. No other sets of spiritual beliefs talk about it. As I study the Bible's idea of grace, it is amazing, as the song goes. First of all, God shows universal...
