1. God is gracious and merciful

God wanted the Israelites to observe different feasts because he wanted them to remember his grace and mercy. God can make all grace abound to you, so that you will have all you need and abound in every good work at all times (2 Corinthians 9:8). God predestined us to be adopted as his children through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will (Ephesians 1:5). It is God who work in you both to will and to do his good pleasure (Philippians 2:13). God is gracious and compassionate. He is slow to anger and rich in love (Psalm 145:8).
