Lovingkindness, Mercy and Grace 
These three words are similar in meaning and characterise the caring nature of our Wonderful Creator. 
This relates to every person conceived in the world - who ever was, whoever is and whoever shall be. 
Firstly, for this to be understood we have to believe that there is a Living God; that He is the Creator and that He created each of us for His purpose. 
Furthermore, Father God is holy and righteous - this means that He is perfect; He cannot be anything else otherwise He cannot be God. 
It stands to reason - if He (They) were not perfect He would have disappeared into obscurity and so would we. Can you see the implications? (Matthew 12:22-30) 
We must also believe the possibility that Jesus of Nazareth died on the cross for us and that God raised Him from the dead as Jesus our Saviour. 
So, we are each created in His image for His purpose for our good, because our perfect Lord cares for us as a world population and loves us, each one, no matter what our temporary circumstances are, for the purpose of us choosing Him as our God, or not. We have been given the privilege of deciding our own permanent future 
This Old Covenant term is expressive of our Creator's attitude to us as He awaits developments in our lives. It is an outpouring of His Love for us in various ways, allowing us each to perceive His presence and realise who He is. Perhaps the closest word in the New Covenant that explains the nature of God in this respect is charity1
An example is His providence:- we have all recognised that certain occurrences have happened at various times which we may consider as coincidence. After a few of these seeming coincidences we recognise that there is a mysterious Power at work. Some are pleasant, others stressful. When looking back on them do we, you and I, acknowledge that they are supernatural and thank the caring Supernatural Power for knowing about us? 
God has His eye on you, my friend, He is asking you to choose your own everlasting destiny. 
The word appears some two hundred and fifty times in the Owner's Manual. 
After believing, then choosing your Creator as your God and start earnestly seeking Him in His Word, He shall be found (Matthew 7:7). You will meet the Author of the Book at some stage of your journey through its pages and realise your utter depravity in comparison to His perfectness, pleading with Him to forgive you of your past sins. This is called repentance. 
Repentance is as a result of faith (Romans 4:3) 
Repentance: to regret or wish to have been otherwise, what one has done or left undone, to change from past evil or misconduct; to feel contrition. 
If you are sincere and wish to follow the wishes of your Covenant Representative, the Man who died for you, to the extent of giving control of your life to Him, God the Holy Spirit of truth shall enter your physical body and be ready to guide, comfort and protect you: the all-knowing Team Leader. 
My dear unknown friend, if you have not yet been touched by the hand of the Living God, here is something that is reality. Please take some time to mull over the implications. 
You may think that you can make your own way in this world, but fortunately this is not so. 
You were made by God, in His image. 
You were made by God, for His purpose. 
You are in fact a slave - to your conscience, your mind. Think about it. 
For example, if you young lady, practice casual sex with someone you love, you may fall pregnant, become a single mother and spend the rest of your life as a slave to your circumstances. 
Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. For he that is dead is freed from sin. Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him: Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God. Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God. For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness. 
(Romans 6:6-18)
I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin. 
(Romans 7:21-25)
There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. 
(Romans 8:1)
If the reality of the above has become apparent to you and you are now a servant of the Most High God, each time you sin and repent thereof you will be forgiven and God will continue working through you to the advantage of His coming righteous Kingdom in this present kingdom of the enemy. A Kingdom of which you shall be a citizen, if you endure to the end. 
This is called grace, ongoing grace. Hallelujah! 
Grace: The undeserved mercy of God; divine influence; eternal life or salvation. 
This word appears some two hundred times in God's word. 
All through the Bible, two relevant truths are revealed and repeated in different ways by God through His servants. 
Firstly, because God is perfect He abhors (detests) sin. Sin is opposite to God's Loving Kindness. Sin is self-ishness and causes strife wherever it occurs. God will not allow sinful servants, those who commit willing conscious sin, into His presence, therefore He devised a way for people to atone for sin, their sin. As we know, the Old Covenant showed that blood is life (without blood there cannot be life), so He showed that sacrifice of some living creature's blood would atone (to make amends), for the sin of a repentant sinner. That many cultures used to practise this (sometimes human) sacrifice of blood for religious reasons is documented throughout history. 
However the purpose of blood sacrifice is not to atone for sin but to reveal a repentant heart. It has to be repeated for each sin. 
Secondly, to enter into heaven requires more than a repentant heart, it requires the giving up of one's independent (sinful) ways, to willingly give oneself to God "lock stock and barrel", knowing that He will protect us better than we can do ourselves, allowing Him to direct our ways on this physical world for His Spiritual purpose, so that His Kingdom can come and we can live in His peace. What a privilege! 
So, He offered up Himself as the Blood Sacrifice (a Covenant2 ceremony which was recognised throughout the world), that whosoever believed in Him and His holiness and righteousness would become a new creature (newly created) inside - a God-centred instead of a self-centred creature. This is what grace means; the undeserved mercy of Almighty God. 
Many professing Christians do not understand the significance of this offering of Himself for His creation. 
This is because we are inclined to look at all things from a physical standpoint, not being aware of God's real (Spiritual) purpose. 
Please come to the understanding that God's spiritual world is timeless, and that all preconceived worldly values and laws - such as gravity - will be done away with. Even the stars will fall from their orbits. Life will be without heartbeats- without blood and time*. 
Please consider and ponder over this truth that is going to happen
Where do you want to be?
And the final "acceptance trials" will be adjudged on that day; when we are in our timeless bodies. (What did I for my Creator, and for what purpose?) 
For example:
And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass; I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first. Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols. And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not. Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works. But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden. But that which ye have already hold fast till I come. And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father. And I will give him the morning star. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. 
(Revelation 2:18-29)
Our destiny has been laid out before the foundation of the world was laid, please take up the offer - now, tomorrow may be too late - Jesus may have stopped knocking at your door (Revelation 3:20) : 
And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit. 
(Ephesians 2:20-22)
For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world. 
(Hebrews 4:3)
A favourite Hymn:
Our blest Redeemer, ere He breathed
His tender last farewell,
A Guide, a Comforter, bequeathed
With us to dwell.
He came in semblance of a dove,
With sheltering wings outspread,
The holy balm of peace and love
On earth to shed.
He came in tongues of living flame
To teach, convince, subdue,
All powerful as the wind He came
As viewless too.
He came sweet influence to impart,
A gracious, willing Guest,
While He can find one humble heart
Wherein to rest.
And His that gentle voice we hear,
Soft as the breath of even,
That checks each fault, that calms each fear,
And speaks of Heav'n.
And every virtue we possess,
And every conquest won,
And every thought of holiness,
Are His alone.
Spirit of purity and grace,
Our weakness, pitying, see:
O make our hearts Thy dwelling place
And worthier Thee.

* Have you ever considered how limiting heartbeats and breathing are? (Luke 9:28-36; Romans 7:24; Hebrews 1:1-14, verse 3). Ask God the indwelling Holy Spirit to reveal this hidden truth to you, beloved.
Have you ever realised, professing Christian, that you will need to enter a third Covenant with God, in another dimension, through the Man seated in the position of honour, in heaven?
The first two centred around blood2, needed for sinful man. 
The third centres around the Spirit and only those who are born again and in loving obedience will enter the ultimate, purposed place for all - God's prsence; where we all want to be!
