On hearing this, Jesus said, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick.
Why did Jesus associate with sinners? Because we need him to associate with us!
What's the most important part of that truth: Jesus' desire to save or our recognition of our sinfulness? Of course the most important part is Jesus' desire to save because without him, recognizing our sinfulness would only lead to despair. But without recognizing our need for his grace, his sacrifice for us is lost. So let's praise Jesus as our loving and sacrificial Savior, but let's also acknowledge our need for his merciful and mighty grace!
Gracious Father, I praise you from the bottom of my heart for providing Jesus as my Savior. Please forgive my sins and receive my praise for your gracious forgiveness. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
