Verses: Matthew 9:5-6, 12-13 (NIV)
Which is easier: to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Get up and walk’? But I want you to know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins…”
Jesus said, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”
Father God, may our hardened hearts be softened toward others that find themselves living without a relationship with You, through Christ. May we be used to guide them toward Christ. May we also remember, but for Your grace we would be eternally lost. Amen.
