Finding mercy

  • Series: Invitations to faith
  • Scripture: Lk 18:9-14
  • Location: St Paul's Cooma

Most people in our culture believe instinctively that a place in God’s kingdom (roughly equals ‘heaven’), something they desperately want for themselves and for their loved ones, is something a person must qualify for on their merits. Heaven, in other words, is awarded on interview. Jesus’ illustrative story of two people who went to God’s temple destroys that deadly myth in a few lines. It’s not your merits; it’s God’s mercy, freely given to those who seek it.
