Mercy Illustrated October 21, 2019

Judge Fiorella H. La Guardia was mayor of New York City during the depression years. On one occasion he was called upon to pass judgment on a grandmother who had stolen bread to feed her starving grandchildren. La Guardia fined her $10 but then paid the fine himself — a wonderful picture of mercy. We are all guilty before God. We have broken His law. The Bible declares “The wages of sin is death.” But Jesus, by His death on the cross, paid the penalty for us. In gratitude, we should humbly accept God’s mercy and receive Christ as our Saviour. Paul explained “…when we were still without strength, in due time, Christ died for the ungodly.” Don’t worry that that you will be turned away. Jesus promised “… the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out.”
