Begging for Mercy (Sep. 17, 2020)
Stop for a moment and try to imagine this scene. Try to see this sinful woman humbling herself in love before Jesus. If this full action is not an act of deep sorrow, repentance and humility then it’s hard to know what else it is. It’s an action that is not planned out, not calculated, not manipulative. Rather, it’s deeply humble, sincere and total. In this act, she cries out for mercy and compassion from Jesus and she doesn’t even have to say a word.
Lord, I beg for Your mercy. I am a sinner and I deserve damnation. I acknowledge my sin. I beg, in Your mercy, to forgive my sin and pour forth Your infinite compassion upon me. Jesus, I trust in You.
