“I have not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance.” Luke 5:32
Our sin did not make you turn away from us, but it actually made you turn toward us. You spent your life on earth seeking out sinners, eating meals with them, and befriending them.
Everyone expects beautiful, smart, and famous people to be loved, but it is truly miraculous to love the unlovable. You stoop down into my lowliness, lift up my chin, look into my eyes, and befriend me even though we are so different.
Thank you for being my friend! Help me to believe that you really want a close relationship with me. I don’t have to hide from you or put a mask on in front of you. I can come to you just as I am and know that you will love me.
