Stevens, ..- William Carter Company, or a finds is a lame man named Mephibosheth. This young man has been lame on his feet since he was five years old. David sends for this man, brings him to the palace and gives him a place at the king's table. This is a wonderful illustration of grace. According to the late Dr. Harold Sightler there are four things in this story that relates to us the grace of God. He says first of all that grace is God lov- hag unlovely sinners. The Bible definition of grace is unmerit- ed favor. Truly the love of God is undeserved and unearned by those of us who inhabit the earth, but God "so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believeth in him should not per- ish." Next in this story, we find grace is God lifting unable sin- ners. Mephibosheth was lame and unable to get to the king. So the king brought Mephibosheth to himself. What a picture of grace, man could not get to God, so God came to where man was and brought unable humans to himself. David said is Psalm 40, "He brought me up also out of an horrible pit..." God not only reached down for fallen human- ity, but he picked them up. Thirdly we find in this story that grace is God giving undeserv- ing sinners. David restored to Mephibosheth all that pertained to his grandfather, Saul. Just as Mephibosheth was blessed because of his relationship to Saul's son Jonathon, we are blessed based on our relation- ship to God's son, Jesus. All that we have is because of Jesus and his sacrifice on the cross of Calvary. Lastly we find grace is God keeping unworthy sin- ners. Mephibosheth was given a permanent seat at the king's table. To those saved by the grace of God, they are kept by the grace of God. The next time you hear the word grace and some dear old saint of God gets "happy," you must remember Mephibosheth. When you realize that grace is God loving unlovely sinners, lifting unable sinners, giving Saturday Johnnie and Mable Williamson, Judy and Mike Thomaston, Charles and Jennifer Shelnutt and Jessica and Sam and Joyce Richardson enjoyed the day at Westville in Lumpkin.
