“But, I’m a good person…” – Matthew 9:12-13

Matthew 9:12-13 “When Jesus heard this, he said, ‘Healthy people don’t need a doctor—sick people do.’ Then he added, ‘Now go and learn the meaning of this Scripture: “I want you to show mercy, not offer sacrifices.” For I have come to call not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners.’”

What is God saying to me? Many “think they are righteous” apart from Jesus. “But, I am a good person…” As I seek to follow Jesus everyday, I must destroy this mentality in me.

How will I obey? I want to read more into my new identity as a saint that occasionally sins as it relates to this verse. I just added this article to my reading list for later today: http://www.reclaimingthemind.org/blog/2012/01/sinners-who-are-forgiven-or-saints-who-sin-robert-saucy/

Who will I tell? My accountability partner

Apart from Jesus, Do you think you are righteous or do you know you are a sinner?
