Food for Thought
“Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick.”

“Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick.” It was a popular proverb of that day which Lord Jesus applied to the healing of the souls of sinners.

The Jewish religious leaders, believing that eating with sinners make a person sinful in God’s sight, objected to Jesus’ association with tax collectors, whom they usually hate because they collected taxes for the Roman government.

Jesus, revealing his very purpose of coming into the world “to seek and to save that which was lost,” said “I desire mercy and not sacrifice, for I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance.”

The proverb was said of those who think they are already righteous and have no need of God’s forgiveness. Jesus forgives all who will repent and follow Him.

“The knowledge of God is more than burnt offerings.” The knowledge of God means, reverence toward His majesty, fear of His goodness, love of His holiness, trust in His promises and submission to His will. Religious behaviour can never substitute for a heart wholly submitted to God.

Jesus condemned the Pharisees (the Jewish religious leaders) as people who were more concerned about religious forms than about compassion.

 “God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

We should realise that how great is God’s love that sustains our hope. God loved us so much that Christ died for us when we were without strength to do anything good, even when we were ungodly and unworthy sinners.

Because of the sacrificial death of Jesus God has forgiven our sins, we can be confident, that we shall be saved from His future judgement. Once we were God’s enemies, but we are now His friends. The justified person is not only legally forgiven, but he also is reconciled to God.

In order to show the universal significance of Christ’s saving work, Apostle Paul compares the disobedience of Adam with the obedience of Christ. The old sinful humanity finds its origin in Adam and results in death. The new justified humanity has come into being through Christ bringing a new life of righteousness.

The death that follow sin is physical death, the separation of the self from God by an act of disobedience is spiritual death and as a final outcome, the eternal death.

Just as Adam’s act brought universal ruin to the race, so Christ’s work makes salvation freely available to all people.

Adam’s offence led to condemnation that is God’s just punishment, but the gift through Christ offers life and justification, forgiveness and release from that punishment. Condemnation resulted from only one offence, but God’s grace is so great that it can overcome the many offences of all humankind.

God cannot help those who think they are righteous and need no help, but can forgive those who recognise their need of forgiveness. So, think it over, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick.”
