God is rich in mercy and full of grace. He gives us new life, which we don’t deserve through His grace and He doesn’t give us death, which we do deserve through His mercy. God rescued us because He delights in us (Psalm 18:19). God loves us with an unchanging and unending love. He loved us so much, He sent Jesus to pay for our sins (John 3:16, Romans 5:6-8). God’s mercy, grace and love are part of His character. We can trust that He will remain loving, merciful and gracious (Romans 8:38-39). God saved us because he ______ us. Take some time to read the passages together and find some other verses to the help answer our questions. Think about how you can love Him better as a family and as individuals.
