The Kitchen Table Devotional: The Game of Life Day 69
“Eyes On the Road”
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
What we are conscious of determines what we are confident for in this life. Jesus was conscious of the power of God for healing and was confident to heal. It’s so easy to be distracted by what we can do rather than what He will do. Here the righteous are those who think they are good and right, but it is the sick, the sinner, who will be made good and right. When we become conscious of who we are we become confident in what we can do. But when we become conscious of who God is we become confident of what He will do. This world needs a whole lot more than what we can do, it needs what He will do, and God is waiting for us to become conscious of what He can do so that we will be confident in what He will do. He will save anyone from the power and peril of sin who wants to be saved.
