27 After this he went out and saw a tax collector named Levi, sitting at the tax booth; and he said to him, “Follow me.” 28 And he got up, left everything, and followed him. 29 Then Levi gave a great banquet for him in his house; and there was a large crowd of tax collectors and others sitting at the table with them. 30 The Pharisees and their scribes were complaining to his disciples, saying, “Why do you eat and drink with tax collectors and sinners?” 31 Jesus answered, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick; 32 I have come to call not the righteous but sinners to repentance.”
Who among us is without sin? Who among us does not need to be forgiven? Christ heals our brokenness caused by our sin! It is only in knowing our own brokenness, that we can be healed. True knowledge creates in us sorrow, and sorrow leads to repentance.
Lord God, You sent Jesus to share Your mercy with un-worthy sinners like us…
