Last month, 25,000 refugees were expected to arrive in Canada. Millions of desperate families are seeking to find freedom and safety as they flee from terrible atrocities in their war-torn home countries. Unfortunately several countries have had to close their borders to these destitute people because they simply cannot handle any more. It is a sad and heart-breaking situation. But in the midst of this global tragedy, how good to know that there has never been a case in the history of mankind when a sincere person came to Jesus Christ and was turned away. Referring to such individuals, Jesus Himself said, “…the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out.” And do you remember Jesus’ words to the dying, repentant thief on the cross, when he asked for mercy? Jesus graciously said, “This day you will be with me in paradise.” Into our troubled, needy world walks the Son of God, with mercy and grace for all who humbly seek it from Him.
