Mark 2: 16 And when the scribes and Pharisees saw Him eating with the tax collectors and sinners, they said to His disciples, “How is it that He eats and drinks with tax collectors and sinners?”
17 When Jesus heard it, He said to them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance.” source
Our sins have made us sick, but the GOOD NEWS is JESUS IS THE HEALER.
Mark 2: 10 But so you may know that the Son of Man has authority to pardon sins on earth. . ..” He tells the paralyzed man,
11 “I tell you, get up, take your mat and go home!”
12 At once the man got up, took his mat, and walked before them all. They were all astonished and glorified God, saying, “We’ve never seen anything like this!” source
May each of you see things today that astonish you and cause you to Glorify GOD.
2 Peter 2: 21 For you were called to this, because Messiah also suffered for you, leaving you an example so that you might follow in His footsteps:
22 “He committed no sin, nor was any deceit found in His mouth.”
23 When He was abused, He did not return the abuse. While suffering, He made no threats. Instead, He kept entrusting Himself to the One who judges righteously. 24 He Himself bore our sins in His body on the tree, so that we, removed from sins, might live for righteousness. “By His wounds you were healed.”
25 For you like sheep were going astray, but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Guardian of your souls. source
Please be encouraged today, The Shepherd and Guardian of your soul IS. . . .
