Mercy?

Maria Smith's picture

In our bible group, we were discussing if God was a God of mercy or a God of fire and brimstone. In our group, God of mercy had a slight edge. I feel since God is love, this love is indeed His mercy. However, there is atonement we must do for our sins and He has the final judgement.
Would like to know what is your opinion/thoughts on both sides.

mercy and grace and peace

Grace, as defined is What God Gives us that we don’t deserve.
Mercy, as defined is What God does not give us that we do deserve.
Peace is the outcome of both Grace and Mercy from God in our daily lives.

What about Jesus, what did He get and did not get??

Jesus did not deserve what He got from God and was given, so hence, He was shown no Grace.
Jesus did not deserve what He got from God and was not given, so hence, He was shown no Mercy.
Therefore Jesus was deprived of Peace from God.
