In continuing this discussion of Service versus Teaching — and that is really what I am speaking of here — please, allow me to explain a few things.
“When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.” (Mark 2:17)
When Jesus said this, he was not breaking people out into groups of sick folks versus well folks.
What he was saying is that either people see that they are sick or they do not. Because people that think they are OK do not go to the doctor. Generally speaking.
The problem is, all men are sick; and all men need The Great Physician.
Or, more specifically, all men are sinners; and all men need The Savior.
Christ cannot save a man that will not see his need. A man must be willing to see his need.
A man chooses to face his need or he does not. He chooses to see himself as God sees him; or he chooses to live in a fantasy world.
