Everyday He Came for Sinners
Jesus announced He hadn’t come for the self-righteous, but for the sinners. Yep, Jesus came for you and I. Hey this is Debbie Griffith with Everyday Matters. Jesus reinforced His word with deeds. He was not intimidated by authority figures. He broke bread with a notorious public sinner, Zacchaeus and He was unfazed by the crowds’ complaints that He was violating the Law by going into a sinner’s house. Jesus broke the law of traditions when the law of love demanded it.
Either you give life to others in relationships you have with them, or you drain them of life. You either make people a little better or leave them a little bitter. You define your faith and character in the ordinary stuff of your daily life. The Kingdom belongs to us as children, who love others simply and directly, without thinking about anything but them. The inheritors of what Christ’s promises aren’t the ones making all the noise with merely words and good Facebook posts but to those who lend others a hand when they’re falling. That’s the real love of Jesus…everyday.
