Where Justice and Mercy Meet

What if God is really for you?

We tend to think that if there is a God, he must be distant or aloof — or maybe he’s just waiting for us to screw up. The staggering good news for our weary world is that God is FOR all people. He loves you with a relentless passion; He is your biggest advocate – no matter who you are or what you’ve done. The invitation of Jesus is not just for some people or the “right” people, it is for every single person.

Jesus, the God-man came for you, suffered at the hands of His creation for you, rose to life for you to have new life.  God is for you. And he longs for every single person to step into a new life in Jesus.

Teaching Notes

What if God is really for you?

 

Justice – getting what you DESERVE

 

MercyNOT getting what you DESERVE

 

THE DAMASCUS ROAD: Acts 9

 

There is no PATH you can go down where Jesus is not lovingly PURSUING you.

 

  • Instead of being REJECTED, you are CHOSEN

 

  • Instead of carrying SHAME, you are given a new NAME.

 

  • Instead of an ENEMY, you are embraced into God’s FAMILY.

 

What about Justice?

 

You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:6-8

 

In the finished work of Jesus, justice is fully expressed & mercy is fully found
