Doctor In The House – Good News for January 16

16 01 2010

Mark 2:13-17

Jesus went out along the sea. All the crowd came to him and he taught them. As he passed by, he saw Levi, son of Alphaeus, sitting at the customs post. Jesus said to him, “Follow me.” And he got up and followed Jesus.

While he was at table in his house, many tax collectors and sinners sat with Jesus and his disciples; for there were many who followed him. Some scribes who were Pharisees saw that Jesus was eating with sinners and tax collectors and said to his disciples, “Why does he eat with tax collectors and sinners?”

Jesus heard this and said to them, “Those who are well do not need a physician, but the sick do. I did not come to call the righteous but sinners.”

The Daily Path: Can you believe it? A doctor that still makes house calls! And so often He is knocking at our door before we even realize an illness has taken hold. Christ knows what’s in our hearts. The perfect cardiologist.

Room To Chat: Father, help us to care for a country full of your children. Let us come to the aid of those in crisis for no other reason than they are in need.

I’m always blessed as well when a by-product of helping someone else relieves me of the demons I have to deal with daily. Thank you my friend. Hope you’re doing well in this new year. Thanks for the encouragement on my blog too!
