Be Merciful to Me, a Sinner
"Show us Your mercy, O Lord, and grant us Your salvation." Psalm 85:7
There's a story about a lady who went to a photographer to have her picture made. When she saw it, she didn't like it. So she took it back and told the photographer, "You'll have to take this over." He asked, "What's wrong with it?" She said, "It doesn't do me justice." He looked at it and looked at her and said, "Lady, you don't need justice; what you need is mercy."
God is just, but we need mercy. If you have never come to the place where you have seen yourself as a sinner lost before Almighty God and cried out to Him for mercy, then you've never been saved.
You may have joined a church, but have you thrown yourself on the mercy of the court? Have you said, "Lord God, be merciful to me, a sinner."? (Luke 18:13)
