What’s the key to receive mercy?

By Adrian Rogers

BIBLE MEDITATION:
“Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.” Romans 4:7

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
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!”

ACTION POINT:
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.
