The Infinite Reach Of God’s Grace: The Night Stalker

The death of Night Stalker serial killer and avowed Satanist Richard Ramirez prompts me to say this: It’s hard to imagine a
 more evil human being and impossible to imagine the horror, pain, and grief he caused during his spree killings. But if, 
even at the moment just before his death, he truly repented and turned to the Holy One for forgiveness, he is at peace now 
in the everlasting arms of the Savior. Because if the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ was only sufficient for MY sins, 
or YOUR sins, or the sins of other nice people — and even some pretty awful ones — how can we Christians ever truly
understand mercy, truly receive grace, or truly worship a God of infinite love? Perhaps its our belief that the Ramirezes of 
the world are beyond the reach of grace that makes it easy for us to move ever nearer the “bar” of just who it is Jesus 
really loves . . .
