Mark 2:17 – The Sick & Lost

And when Jesus heard it, he said to them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.”

~ Mark 2:17 ESV

How often are we like Pharisees? Often, in our churches, we forget the Jesus came after the sick, the lost, the ones who feel the burden of their sins. He tells us to take care of the poor and widow’s. Sometimes, I lose focus on that and want to elevate the church folks (those who already know Jesus) above those that are in desperate need of a savior.
