Unfortunately, We Meet God in Our Need
Jesus answered them, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.”
- Luke 5:31
Unfortunately, we meet God in our need. It would be so much more pleasant if God met us in our successes more than in our failures, but that’s simply not the case. It would be so much easier if God met us more when we’re healthy than when we were sick, but again, that’s simply not the case.
So will you get in touch with your need? Will you get in touch with your sin? Will you get in touch with your sickness? If not, it’s going to be awfully hard to find God today.
“I have come to see legalism,” says Philip Yancey, “in its purist of false purity as an elaborate scheme of grace avoidance. You can know the law by heart without knowing the heart of it.”
Let’s not avoid grace any longer - the Lord is waiting to show it to all who acknowledge their need of it.
