The Great Physician

And hearing this, Jesus said to them, “It is not those who are healthy who need a physician, but those who are sick; I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners.” Mark 2:17

The Pharisees seen Jesus eating with sinners and rebuked him! Now lets stop to think about this for a minute, who is a Sinner? We are all Sinners (Romans 3:23, Romans 3:9, Ecclesiastes 7:20) So if Jesus was to follow the Pharisees logic then he wouldn’t bother talking to anyone including the Pharisees.

Jesus here is making a statement that deals with the physical and spiritual realms. First hes talking about the sick who need a physical healing and then hes talking about sinners who need a spiritual rebirth (become saved)

See Jesus didn’t come to give us a temporary fix, he came to give us the permanent cure which is eternal life through him. Even if Christ were to fully restore our health, if we are not saved, then we are still condemned to eternal death due to the wages of our sins.

The Pharisees thought by doing religious works they could earn salvation, but Jesus called them “Whitewashed Tombs” why? Because on the outside they looked good but internally they were evil and corrupt. The love of God was not in them, only self righteousness

Jesus is the only way to get the permanent cure. The price he paid on the cross has given us eternal life. Repent and Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ , The Great Physician Amen!

    Brother,so many family members have told me over the years that I have been brainwashed by following Jesus.
    YES!!!!! I just didn’t need to be saved from my sin life my brain needed to be cleansed by the Blood of Jesus as well! I needed a new way of thinking because if my whole body wasn’t cleansed by His Blood meaning my brain I might think I could go back out into the world.
    Praise God that when He saves you He washes your brain and your old way of thinking away! HalleluYAH!
