Grace, Mercy, Forgiveness

Grace.
Mercy.
Forgiveness.

What do these 3 words mean to you?

In the dictionary, they can be defined as: 

Grace: (in Christian belief) the free and unmerited favor of God, as manifested in the salvation of sinners and the bestowal of blessings.
mercy:
Forgiveness: the action or process of forgiving or being forgiven.
Mercy: compassion or forgiveness shown toward someone whom it is within one's power to punish or harm.

These 3 simple, yet powerful words encompass my relationship with Christ. Jesus died for me, and freely gave me His grace and mercy, choosing to forgive me of all my sins. So amazing. These past three years of walking with Christ have been the most fulfilling years of my life. Sure there have been plenty of trials, but Jesus has been faithful throughout each one. I trust Him. He is good. He is my Father.  

"Now this is the way to eternal life--to know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, the one you sent to earth."
John 17:3
