Jesus answered them, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.”
(Luke 5:31-32 (NIV))
Are you arrogant enough to believe that you are righteous without Jesus?
Sadly, there are people in this world who believe that they are good enough to go to heaven on their own merits. We know better.
for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God
(Romans 3:23 (NIV))
If all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, then everyone is a sinner in need of repentance. In other words, Jesus came to call everyone to repent, and not just your friends and people like you.
We are all sick and in need of a doctor. This doctor can heal anything. This doctor can even bring eternal life. All that any of us have to do is call upon the name of Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior and turn away from the sin that has claimed you.
You may think that you are healthy, but we all know better than to believe this false claim. All have sinned. All are in need of a Savior.
This doctor makes heart calls. There are no lines, no waiting and no payment is expected. Jesus already paid everything for us.
Don’t wait to get healthy!
