Where Mercy Meets the Need of Forgiveness

Have you ever felt like your life is one bad choice after another? That what you do best is mess up? Do you hear that voice that says, “You’re a loser and always will be.”? Absolutely, I think we all have at one time or another. I know I have. So what do we do about it, how do we break the” bad choice after bad choice” habit? How do we counteract the voice that says, “You’re a loser and always will be.”?

We need someone to tell us the good news of Jesus Christ. We need to know that because of His love and mercy, God sent His Son, Jesus, to die upon the Christ for sinners like us. “By this the love of God was manifested in us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him” (1 John 4:9) We need to know that God wants to come and live in our hearts and change our lives. We need to know that through Jesus, and only through Jesus, can we be forgiven.

But, “how are they to believe in Him of whom they have never heard?” (Romans 10: 14b) That is where you come in. If you have experienced the mercy and forgiveness of Jesus Christ in your life and desire to be obedient to His commandment to “go and tell”, I want to encourage you to consider becoming a Client Advocate at the Alpha Women’s Center. A client advocate is one who comes alongside others to “advocate” on their behalf, one who shares the good news of Jesus Christ. One who having experienced the mercy and forgiveness of Jesus Christ personally, desires to see others know of His great mercy and forgiveness.

Give me a call at the Alpha Women’s Center, a place where mercy meets the need of forgiveness.

“But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ… For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing: it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2: 4-5, 8-10
