“When Jesus heard it, He said to them, Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance.”
When we think of sinners, we may think of drug addicts, drunkards, adulterers and people who are immoral; people who have an outward appearance of sin! They look and speak sinfully and openly reject God!
“Even so you also outwardly appear righteous to men, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.”
Like the Pharisees (the Bible teachers), how many of us look good on the outside, go to church, have a nice job and a model family, but in reality we are cripple inside! For what ever reason, usually pride, can’t admit that we are sick and in need of the healing hand of Jesus!
“You can wear a mask and paint your face. You can call yourself the human race. You can wear a collar and a tie. One thing you can’t hide. Is when you’re crippled inside.”
Jesus sees all and knows all!
If you take a look at social media, everyone looks fine: great jobs, great families on great trips! When we go out on the town we see new cars, new phones and great clothes. On the outside we are doing great! Realize, the LORD really cares about what’s going on inside of you! We hear believers say that we need a revival. Awesome, but revival won’t ever happen until we have repentance and that starts on the inside our inside!
“If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”
2 Chronicles 7:14
Today, let’s look inside, ourselves and really do a housecleaning. Call upon the LORD and allow Him to remove the junk! Then let’s start praying for the world around us! Have a blessed day seeking the LORD!
