Eye On Integrity-Mercy

December 10th, 2018

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Eye on Integrity is based on Matthew 9:12.

Jesus said this to a group of skeptics, who wondered why he was eating with tax collectors and sinners.

“It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”

Jesus did not come merely for a social call. He came on a rescue mission. The church serves as the hands and feet of Jesus to reach out to the lost and hurtingtoday. Ravi Zacharias says, “Those who are hurting and faltering need the strong arm of God to hold them. The Church has to provide those arms…..If we are to reflect Christ to the world around us, we need to learn what this means”…..’I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’

Walking with a mission of mercy is a virtue to embrace for our lives in the Year of Integrity.
