I’d love to hear from you in the comments! Share a thought or two from this Weeks’s reading in Matthew to encourage each other.
One section that I LOVED this week was :
“Go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, and not sacrifice.’ For I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.” Matt 9:13
The literal translation of that shows Jesus saying something more along the lines of, ‘I delight to give help & mercy to sinners. I am determined to bring this world mercy, not a demand of adherence to the law.’
This is good news for the spiritually sick such as you and me!
Mercy incarnate came and forever changed my life. He became the sacrifice so that the demands on me were paid in full by Himself and I was left with full mercy.
So, what hit you in reading this week?
