March 23: “One Mindset that Attracts Jesus”

2 Minute Read

TODAY’S BIBLE READING:

Numbers 36:1—Deuteronomy 1:46
Luke 5:29–6:11
Psalm 66:1-20
Proverbs 11:24-26

TODAY’S BIBLE VERSE(S):

Luke 5:31-32 (NLT): “Jesus answered them, ‘Healthy people don’t need a doctor — sick people do. I have come to call not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners and need to repent.’ “

REFLECTIONS ON TODAY’S BIBLE VERSE(S):

Do you want to be the kind of person that Jesus is attracted to? Do you want to have the mindset that acts like a magnet to the Savior?

Then be honest about your sin struggles. Be broken over your inability to consistently live the way He has called you to live.

Jesus is attracted to sinners. He is attracted to those who are honest about their true condition because it is only when we are honest about our true condition that we are prepared to receive the remedy.

Luke 5:31-32 (NLT): “Jesus answered them, ‘Healthy people don’t need a doctor — sick people do. I have come to call not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners and need to repent.’ “

“Righteous” people don’t feel the need for Jesus. Sinners, who are broken over their sinfulness, desperately feel the need for the Savior.

Jesus is attracted to the latter.

Which one are you?
