Rich

God in His word, specifically Romans 2 says: “But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved”. That statement is our hope. But look at what it says a little deeper. The God who is a maker and creator to all we see, does not say, "I am rich because all I made is mine", he does not say "I am rich because you are poor". The God we worship declares Himself "rich in mercy". He is rich in everything, but He identifies Himself “rich in mercy”. We are rich in sin but He is richer in mercy. And that should make us all glad, and that is the good news of the gospel.
