We’re so thankful to see all that God is doing through the faithful people of LifePoint Church right here in our own city. But we’re also grateful for the doors God continues to open for us to go and minister in other parts of the world. Today we hear stirring and encouraging reports from mission work in Ecuador with child sex trafficking, and from India with children forced into poverty and slavery.
Blessed are the Merciful
Deeply ingrained in every human heart is a desire for justice. This is part of the image of God that has been imprinted on our nature, but because of sin, our desire for justice has been distorted. It now lurks inside us, keeping track of all the ways other people have offended us, and constantly demanding that they pay for what they’ve done. But rather than seeking revenge, Jesus said His followers should be quick to show mercy by forgiving the debts of others, even if they don’t deserve it. After all, God forgave us of all our sin, and we did nothing to deserve it!
