Our Loving Sacrificial Savior

Share

On hearing this, Jesus said,It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick.” — Matthew 9:12

Thought

Why did Jesus associate with sinners? Because we need him to associate with us! What’s the most crucial part of that truth: Jesus’ desire to save or our recognition of our sinfulness? Of course the most crucial part is Jesus’ desire to save because without him, recognizing our sinfulness would only lead to despair. But without recognizing our need for his grace, his sacrifice for us is lost. So let’s praise Jesus as our loving and sacrificial Savior, but let’s also acknowledge our need for his merciful and mighty grace!

Prayer

Gracious Father, I praise you from the bottom of my heart for providing Jesus as my Savior. At the same time, dear Father, I confess to you I struggle with sin. I want it completely out of my life, but I find that I cannot rid myself of its constant shadow and its penetrating stain. Without your grace and the sacrifice of Jesus, I know I could not stand before you as your pure child. Please forgive me for the following sins … and please receive my praise for your gracious forgiveness. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
