"The Lord is righteous in all His ways, gracious in all His works." - Psalm 145 V17
"...Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance." - Mark 2 V17
The Lord is righteous and His standards are righteous. When God judges with His standard, no one stands righteous before Him. The Pharisees in the days of Jesus considered themselves to be learned and holy, and they thought they met God's holy standards, but Jesus rebuked them at several occasions and also mentioned that the kingdom of God belonged to the meek who acknowledge their sinfulness and run to Christ for salvation. God is gracious to offer His free gift of salvation to sinners who repent and turn to Him. Run to the great physician and receive the healing from sin. Praise the Lord!
"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
