Have you ever thought that now that Jesus is in heaven, you can't approach Him as you might have during the time He walked the earth? What you need to see this morning is that Jesus is willing to receive you, if you come to Him in the right way.
We consider three things:
*First, that you can come to Jesus, if you come in the right way.
*Second, that when you come to Jesus in the right way, you can expect that He will show you mercy.
*Finally, that in return for His mercy, there is something Jesus wants you to do for Him.
Remember that when you come to the Lord to come in humility and in faith, and when you believe that He can and will help you, submitting to how He wants to meet that need, Jesus will very graciously and tenderly care for your need.
