He does not cut off and destroy humanity as our sins deserve, but offer forgiveness as a free gift to be received through faith in Jesus Christ. He is free in His goodness to those who have neither deserved nor merited, in any manner His goodness. God gives out of love, not out of obligation or necessity. To those in misery and need, God displays His love through a tender, personal, and eternal interest. For this reason He is addressed as "the Father of mercies and God of all comfort."
1 Cor 1:3 "Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and the God of all comfort"
Ps 89: 1, 2 "I will sing of the mercies of the Lord for ever: with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations. For I have said, Mercy shall be build up for ever: thy faithfulness shalt thou establish in the very heavens."
