Welcome to our service today. It is great to have you here and we would love to invite you to stay after the service and join us for tea and coffee.
Two principles that we are called to live by from the Bible are mercy and justice. These are at the very foundation of God’s character and we see this throughout His Word.
Mercy and justice are essential principles/traits for every believer but they are not always easy to keep in balance. Some people are merciful to the point that they excuse wrongdoing. Others are just to the extent that they forget mercy. Mercy without justice, because it is not aiming at a higher standard, can leave people in their sins. On the other hand, justice without mercy, because it has no heart, can drive people away from God. To focus on one at the expense of the other is to distort our witness. As God’s church we must aim to live and act out both principles.
