"Mercy is God’s innermost being turned outward to sustain the visible and created world in unbreakable love."
The mercy of God does not come and go, granted to some and refused to others. Why? Because it is unconditional—always there, underlying everything.
It is literally the force that holds everything in existence, the gravitational field in which “we live and move and have our being” (Acts 17:28)
