A man from London was vacationing in France, driving his Mercedes Benz automobile, when he heard a loud bang, and his car veered off the road. He called a tow truck, which towed him to the nearest town with a Mercedes dealership. The mechanic discovered that the rear axle was broken, and a day later was able to fix it.
After a few more days of vacation, the man returned to London with his car. As the car’s warranty was no longer good, he expected to receive a bill for the car repair. Three weeks went by, and he had not received a bill, so he wrote the dealership a letter.
A few days later he received a letter from the regional office of Mercedes Benz, stating:
Dear Mr. Jones:
Thank you for your inquiry regarding a bill for work on your car. We sincerely regret the inconvenience to you on your recent trip to France. However, we have no record of a Mercedes Benz automobile ever breaking an axle.
Have a nice day.
See, that’s how the Lord works – Satan stands before God with a list of our sins, accusing us of our sins before the holy, righteous God of the universe. But we repent of our sins, God says to Satan: WE HAVE NO RECORD OF ANY SINS COMMITTED BY THIS PERSON.
Depart from me, you evil creature! And he pushes the trap door button, and Satan falls back down into the lake of fire.
That is the incredible loving and merciful God that we serve!
