“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Matthew 9:13

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Jesus said,

“I have come to call

not those who think they are righteous,

but those who know they are sinners.”

.

– Matthew 9:13 (NLT)

.

.

REFLECTION…

.

Jesus is indicating that “those who think they are righteous”,

in other words the proud and self-justified,

do not even notice His call.

.

They are so engrossed in their own self

that they even convince themselves into believing that they are truly righteous.

.

They have ears…but they will not listen to the whispering of the Spirit.

They have ears…but they only listen to themselves!

.

On the other hand, those who know they are sinners”,

and who humbly acknowledge their weakness to the Lord,

they readily listen out for Him,

humbly admit their faults and failings with a contrite heart,

and faithfully seek to be forgiven and healed by Him.

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Jesus, my Lord, thank You for never giving up on me.

Thank You, Lord God. Forgive me, Lord God. Heal me, Lord God.
