I'm So Glad

I'm so glad

On Sunday before I left for church with the family, I read this little passage (from Passion & Purity by Elizabeth Elliot) which touched me a lot:

... and old Scottish preacher who, as he was serving the bread and wine of the Lord's Supper noticed a young girl sobbing at the communion rail. As he passed her the bread, visible sign of the body of the Lord Jesus ("I give it for the life of the world,"He said) the girl turned away her face, whch was wet with tears.
"tak' it, lassie," said the old man. "it's for sinners."

yes, no one is beyond His grace & mercy.... for He came for sinners, and I'm so glad.
