GOD CHOSE JUSTICE AND MERCY - Romans 9:14-26
If you are a follower of Jesus, God intends to show you something about Himself. He reveals to you how glorious He is. God reveals His glory both by judging people fairly for their law-breaking, and also by showing undeserved mercy on you and others despite your law-breaking.
