What’s the key to receive mercy?
By Adrian Rogers
“Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.” Romans 4:7
There was a king who asked slaves on a ship, “Why are you in chains?”
One replied, “I don’t know. I was in a crowd when a crime was committed. I am innocent.”
He asked another who said, “I am not guilty but a victim of false witnesses.” The king proceeded to ask each man the same question and each had a reason why he was innocent.
That is, until one man responded, “I am here because I deserve to be here. I have sinned against my God and against my king. And now I am paying the penalty.”
The king stepped back and said, “What are you doing here among so many honest men? Guards, release him!”
Not until we admit our sin are we going to know the mercy and forgiveness of the King. Bow before Him today and admit you are lost without Him.
