Grace is God giving us that which we don’t deserve.
Mercy is God delivering us from that which we do deserve.
The word “new” in the New Testament (when used by the apostles at least) points to what God is in.
Something is “new” because God — who is Life — is in it.
He is “new” every morning.
New man (humanity)
If it’s “new,” God is in it.
“Behold, I make all things new.”
“Behold, I will do a new thing.”
Can you list some other things that the New Testament describes as “new.”
