Dr. Jesus. 8.1.22

Dr. Jesus. 8.1.22

“When Jesus heard this, he told them, “Healthy people don’t need a doctor—sick people do. I have come to call not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners.” (Mark 2:17)

People don't go to a specialist unless they have a problem. If we know we are sick, we look for someone who can help us. Thank God for our medical people!

People criticized Jesus for hanging out with people who had shady reputations. That is like criticizing a Doctor for hanging around sick people. People who believe they are healthy do not seek the help of a physician.

We are all sick and in need of spiritual healing. Jesus is where we should turn for the healing we need. And, if, as a believer, you are looking for someone who might be open to the message of the gospel, look for the person who knows they are sick. They are the ones who are most likely to be willing to listen.
