Grace Vs Mercy

Distinguish grace from mercy:
Grace-God’s solution to man’s sin.

Mercy-God’s solution to man’s misery.

Grace-Covers the sin. 
Mercy-Removes the pain.

Grace-Gives us what we do not deserve. 
Mercy-Does not give us what we do deserve

Grace-Unearned favor which saves us. 
Mercy-Undeserved favor which forgives us.

Grace-Deals with the cause of sin. 
Mercy-Deals with the symptoms of sin.

Grace-Offers pardon for the crime. 
Mercy-Offers relief from the punishment.

Grace-Cures or heals the “disease.” 
Mercy-Eliminates the pain of the “disease.”

Grace-Regarding salvation it says, “Heaven.”
Mercy-Regarding salvation it says, “No Hell.”

Grace-Says, “I pardon you.”
Mercy-Says, “I pity you” 

Titus 2:11-14

New International Version (NIV)

 11 For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. 12 It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, 13 while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, 14 who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.
