The arms of Jesus are open to all
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.” Mk 2:17. The arms of Jesus are open to all. He is ready to embrace those who know they need a loving God in their life who will heal the hurts of the past and prepare a new way forward. As for those who think they are righteous, they often have their own ideas of right and wrong to justify what they do that ultimately has no foundation. They will often deny God who won’t deny them. We stand on God’s Word and no one is truly righteous, only God, and it’s the righteousness of Jesus that covers us when we ask Him into our heart. Thank Jesus today that He is the bridge between our fallen humanity and a loving righteous God that desires the very best life for us possible as we trust Him and put our hope in Him.
