God, Have Mercy on Me, a Sinner
Text: Luke 18:9-14; Luke 6:36-37
Once again, Jesus takes our understanding of the Kingdom of God and turns it upside down. By looking at the Pharisee and the Tax Collector, Jesus helps us to understand the value of our own righteousness as compared to the value of God’s mercy and grace. This week, Pastor Jon asks the listener to consider ways in which they might be like the Pharisee, and ways that they might be like the tax collector. May we all be reminded that we are but sinners, in need of God’s mercy and grace.
