If someone asked you when you’re most happy you probably wouldn’t say it’s when you’re forgiving someone who hurt you or staying up night after night with a sick relative.

Those definitions get pretty close to what Jesus meant when He said, “Blessed are the merciful” in His Sermon on the Mount.Yet there’s a depth of meaning you can’t get from a dictionary. John MacArthur gives you that expanded, biblical understanding on GRACE TO YOU.
