BUT IF THE 'WORLD' GETS INTO THE CHURCH,

THE CHURCH WILL GO DOWN IN DISGRACE!"

Mercy Beyond Measure!

At times we are prone to wrong someone, and when we do, it is normal for us to back off and become distant in our shame. We might imagine that the person we offended is replaying our thoughtless conduct over and over. It could happen in human relationships, but If we imagine God to be this way, we would be severely mistaken.

Luke 15:12 recounts the story of a prodigal son as he asked his father for his portion of his inheritance, now. He made this request while his father was still in good health. The father “agreed to divide his wealth between his sons”.

You recall, the son ran to the “far country” and wasted all that his father had given him. A famine came, and the son was destitute. He now made his way back to his father with a groveling speech prepared. But the father had been waiting and watching for the son! As he got a glimpse of his boy coming home, he ran toward him, embraced him, and  forgive him.

To some, the father’s actions would be seen as foolish. But this good father (like our heavenly Father) had no ego to protect. The Father’s mercy is free.

What an example for ALL fathers, to be willing to extend love and mercy and forgiveness freely toward our children.

1 John 1:9. “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and cleanse us of all unrighteous.”

  3. Good evening Pastor Bill.
    I assume that the lady playing the piano is your wife. I also play the piano – almost every Sunday in Church. Melton does not play guitar but he does have one and is going to take lessons when we retire.
    God Bless
