“Those who are well have no need for a physician, but those who are sick.” Luke 5:31 Luke tells how Jesus healed the body and the soul of a paralyzed man. Following that miraculous event, Levi answered Jesus’ call to follow Him and then invited his fellow tax collectors and friends to a banquet in honor of the Lord. When some people accused Jesus of associating with undesirables, He reminded them that healthy people don’t need a doctor, adding, “I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance”. To everyone who feels like a “throwaway” headed for the landfill of life, Jesus opens His arms of love and offers a fresh beginning. That’s why He came! Salvation is receiving a new life.
