I Came Not To Call The Righteous…

Remember who you’re talking to
The only one who death bows to
That’s the God who walks with you ~ Remember, Bryan and Katie Torwalt

There are moments when the lyrics of a song can bring a person to their knees in reverence for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. That happened yesterday. While listening the line “Remember who you’re talking to” could have just as easily been a cannon being fired as the resonance was overwhelming.

Do we remember who we’re talking to when we pray, we when seek, first, His guidance, when we look around at the mundane? Do we see our Lord’s Hand in every aspect of life? Do we remember who made all this and who He made it for? Why do we insist on waiting to the end of our life to remember who we’re talking to? Why does it take severe pain to get our attention?

And Jesus answering said unto them, They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. ~Luke 5:31-32 KJB

We are all sinners, some more so than others, but let’s be clear, we are all sinners. None are perfect, except Jesus Christ.

When the “cannon” was fired the only thought was fear of the Lord. Not a single transgression, not a single sin nor any time of separation was identified, but the fact that we fall short of our gift of grace and mercy was clear and present and in that moment. There was no shame or guilt just the knowledge that our God has set the bar for us to achieve and when we fall short it hurts and sometimes, like yesterday, it hurts very deeply.

All this came about in the middle of a great day. Having just arrived from working with a couple of men and helping them to draw nearer to God, lots of prayer, lots of discussion about Our Father and His Son, Immanuel, but there must’ve been something left behind that needed to be seen, needed to be known or needed to be heard.

And no man putteth new wine into old bottles; else the new wine will burst the bottles, and be spilled, and the bottles shall perish. But new wine must be put into new bottles; and both are preserved. ~ Luke 5:37-38 KJB

We must be born again and maybe that process is still ongoing several years later. Are we ever fully born again or do we continue to be born again on a daily basis? With our mercies being renewed every morning are we born again every morning for we are not to be concerned with tomorrow, but are to live in today and today only.

He still has the power to raise the dead, don’t tell me that He’s finished yet. ~ Remember, Bryan and Katie Torwalt

Either the Scripture is the divine Word of God teaching us how to live and how to be a reflection of God, or it’s nothing more than a historical account of events.
