If you understand God's true character, then you can have comfort in knowing that He is in control of everything.
God's grace and mercy are greater than His wrath. We don't deserve His mercy and grace but He freely gives them to us.
Can we ever be the mature people that God wants us to be? With God's help, we can.
When someone wrongs us we seek personal justice. When people wrong God he has compassion. Our goal as a church is to develop that same passion for compassion.
Jesus showed mercy to the worst of sinners in order to lead them into a relationship with God.
