In 1975, Maury Davis, at age 18, committed a brutal murder. He was later brought before a jury of his peers in a Texas Criminal Court, where his attorney relied upon the defense of "demon possession". He was tried, convicted, and sentenced to 20 years in the Texas Department of Correction. He found the Lord for the first time as he sat in that 5x9 jail cell, and he turned his life around.
In 1983, Davis was released (after being denied parole many times before) on a prison over-crowding lottery. Turns out, God had a plan for Davis that did not include him being on parole.
So was that Justice? Mercy? Or Grace?
And whatever it was… which one would you rather have?
I met Pastor Davis at Cornerstone Church many years later. 1998 to be exact. I was a former police officer, was working at the District Attorney's Office, and about to open my own practice… and I thought to myself… "yea, right. This preacher got some 'Jailhouse Jesus' and has 'really' turned his life around? I'm sure!"
Truth is… Pastor Davis is the real deal. He's not just "playing Church". His number one focus is "souls". And, he has led more people to Christ than anyone I have personally ever met.
