Matthew 9:11-13 (KJV)


Matthew 9:11-13 states, "And when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto his disciples, Why eateth your Master with publicans and sinners? 12 But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick. 13 But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance."

I have been thinking this week about Jesus’ ministry. Who did He surround Himself with during His ministry? And what was His purpose while He was on earth?  Jesus was a man that spent His time daily breaking down the social barriers and going against the norm of society. He was a man that spent time with the outcasts, sinners, publicans, poor and rich; each group He loved and desired to serve among them sharing the Gospel. He set a standard for us today, which was proved when he would rebuke those that were apart of religious sects that cared more for themselves then loving their fellow man.

The verses referenced above speaks of the Pharisees, a religious sect who didn’t want Jesus’ ministry to grow. They began questioning Jesus and His disciples about their reasoning to spend time with certain groups of people. This was something they believed they were superior to and didn’t understand the motive behind Jesus’ behavior. His response in verse 12 & 13 has been pressed on me this week. It really makes me think of who I should be ministering to and how important it is to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the lost and needy, because they have a greater need of it. Even if it goes against the norms society and may not be applauded by men, it is what we are called to do as disciples of Christ.

I encourage you this week to spend time with the lost or a brother/sister that you feel lead to speak and show them the love of Christ! Let us continue to be the hands and feet of Jesus!

In Christ,

Bro. Matt Collins
