Today's Verse : Luke 5:31-32


May 31, 2012

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
-- Luke 5:31-32

Jesus was often criticized for deliberately associating with
people who were suspect in the eyes of the "religious." There was a
reason for his behavior. He wasn't doing this to be popular, weird,
bizarre, or hip. Jesus came to redeem the enslaved, find the lost,
mend the broken, and reclaim the sinner. Can Jesus' bodily presence
strive for anything less than this today, and still call herself
Jesus' Church?

Forgive me, Father, when I opt for security in my acquaintances
and I avoid potentially messy entanglements in my relationships.
Please open my eyes to see the needy all around me. Please use me
to lead them to your grace and to help them find family with your
people. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
