Matthew 9:11-13 When the Pharisees saw this, they asked his disciples, “Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?” On hearing this, Jesus said, ” It is not the healthy that need a doctor, but the sick. But go and learn what this means: ‘ I desire mercy, not sacrifice. ‘ For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.” These verses left such an impact on me when first cracking open the bible. Knowing that God was not in search of an angel, but of a lost, broken and sinful me. The more damaged and incurable we are the more God has victory when we finally let Him into our hearts and except Him as our personal Lord and savior. I was so far down in my life that all I could think of was dying and I couldn’t even do that right. My heart was so very broken and so full of sadness that I thought it unfixable. Jesus loves all of us and all He wants is to help mend our broken hearts, leading and guiding us to a better life. If you are looking for the way, the truth, and the light, then bow your head with me in prayer. Heavenly Father, thank you so much for this beautiful day. Come into our hearts today and begin the healing process from all the damage that we have done over the years. Show us a new way of life in which we put you first and die to our old selves. In Jesus precious name AMEN.
