God is definitely merciful to the convicted sinner who realizes they cannot keep His commandments and are driven to Christ for mediation. God sent His Son, He is merciful! We have His revealed will, and once we understand that all our righteousness is as filthy rags we can turn to Jesus and He will not turn us away!
