Jesus said to them, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.” (Mark 2:17, NIV)

Doctor Jesus

If we didn’t need to be saved from our sins, God never would have sent His Son to this earth. He knows each of us personally. He knows our strengths and our weaknesses. He knows what builds us up and what tears us down. He knows what we do every minute of every day. He knows what we do when we are alone – when no else is around. He knows our struggles and all of our shortcomings. He knows each and every one of our many sins. The fact is, He knows us better than we know ourselves. He knows that none of us are worthy to enter His Kingdom. But, He has provided a way for us to live with Him in eternity.

It is important to recognize and confess our sins. Just as a doctor prescribes antibiotics to help us when we are ill, Christ prescribes His love to maintain our spiritual health! Spend some time with the “Doctor” today. Allow Him to nurture you back to health!

Work for ChristEnjoy your day, “Working for Christ”!
