26 Bible verses about grace, mercy and love of God

Let us look at one of the most important topic in the Bible today. It is about the grace of God. When you will be looking through the verses on the subject you will probably be surprised how few of them are from the Old Testament. It does not mean that God wasn’t graceful back then. It is because this feature of God was fully revealed in Christ through his sacrifice on the cross. God bless you.
