May the peace and grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with the entire community of the @Steemchurch Ministry. My deepest thanks to our brother @maxdevalue for a new challenge in the Goldencenser with the best intention of motivating parishioners to participate in enriching activities that allow us to approach God through His Word.

> 30 And the scribes and the Pharisees murmured against the disciples, saying: Why do you eat and drink with publicans and sinners? 31 Jesus answered and said to them: Those who are healthy do not need doctors, but sick people. 32 I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance (NIV Luke 5: 30-32).

#

The scribes and the Pharisees represent arrogant people, those who believe they are self-sufficient, those whom they claim to be perfect in all things. They believed themselves righteous and holy. They criticized Jesus because he ate with sinners. For them, the only ones who had the right to be children of God were the Israelites.

#

The Lord Jesus, seeing that these Jews believed themselves more holy than others, had to say: "I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance."
This is one of the important reasons why salvation will pass to the Gentiles. These Gentiles who recognized his sinful condition, who knew that his heart was sick from sin, was what motivated the Lord Jesus to give his life for all sinners.

#

This is my brief reflection on today's word of the majestic Goldencenser.

Everything that we’re up to in this generation is possible because Jesus Christ came for us! We were sick and he healed us. Now he is taking us through the path of freedom for his glory to be made manifest in us.

Thanks for participating!
