Is There A Doctor In The House? Mark 2:13-17
(To watch this entire service, just CLICK HERE.)
Have you ever gone to the doctor with a serious injury and had him or her recoil in horror? Of course you haven't. That's what doctors are for: to take our gruesome injuries and help heal them. Jesus works the same way. He isn't bothered or startled by your condition; he wants to change it. In this week's passage, Jesus identifies his work with that of a doctor, and he identifies us as dying people in desperate need of help.
