Jesus answered 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 and need to repent. Luke 5: 31-32
Jesus came to be with those of us who think we need help. You have met those people who think they are good enough on their own. They are people who are are not very pleasant to be around.
When we act like we have it all together and don’t need anything or anyone its a turn off and gives a bad representation of Jesus.
When we admit our need for the Lord it allows The Holy Spirit to work in our lives. Surrendering and admitting we are in need tends to make us softer and not so harsh or controlling.
No one likes a controlling in charge person who thinks they are perfect.
The Lord came to be with those of us that can admit we are sinners and can’t do life on our own. We could live life without Him, but we can’t really do much better with Him.
My Pearl today is that the Lord came to show me how sinful I am, but gave me a way out and saved me from myself. What a relief.
