Luke 5 :32
I have come to call not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners and need to repent.”
Then Jesus says “32 I have come to call not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners and need to repent.” Jesus came to help the sinner. He came to the people who needed him. He did not come for the people who didn’t have issues or problems. Jesus came to heal and lead us to salvation. This does not only refer to the person who does not know God, or the one who has never heard of Him. This speaks to the person who is having struggles in their life. People in and out of church. We are all human and we all sin by nature. By falling into sin, you should not run from God but towards God. He came to help us in our struggles. He wants us to repent and follow Him. If anything, this should draw us, who know God, closer to Him as his spirit convicts us when we sin. We know we are weak without him, how much more, those who don’t know Him? We should not push people away from God once they fall into sin. We should encourage them to get to know God and ask Him to help them. Because that’s exactly what Jesus came for and who He came for.
One thought on “Jesus Came for the Sinners”
That’s exactly what Jesus came for, and who He came for! Just as a healthy person does not require of a doctor, but he who is sick does. Jesus came to those who need Him! Great reflection to remind us how he found us and that now that we have been found, we need to go and help others in need of Him, come to Him. For God so loved the WORLD…”
