Jesus left His throne in Glory and came to earth for:
Matthew 20:16 (KJV) tells us this…
16 So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.
Luke 19: 10 (KJV) says…
“For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.”
Matthew 25:40 (NIV) tells us…
40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
THE LEFT OUT
Luke 7:36-38 (NCV) tells the story…
36 One of the Pharisees asked Jesus to eat with him, so Jesus went into the Pharisee’s house and sat at the table. 37 A sinful woman in the town learned that Jesus was eating at the Pharisee’s house. So she brought an alabaster jar of perfume 38 and stood behind Jesus at his feet, crying. She began to wash his feet with her tears, and she dried them with her hair, kissing them many times and rubbing them with the perfume.
THE LOOKED OVER
Mark 10: 46-52 says…
- 46 And they came to Jericho: and as he went out of Jericho with his disciples and a great number of people, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the highway side begging. 47 And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out, and say, Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on me.
- 48 And many charged him that he should hold his peace: but he cried the more a great deal, Thou son of David, have mercy on me. 49 And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called. And they call the blind man, saying unto him, Be of good comfort, rise; he calleth thee. 50 And he, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Jesus.
- 51 And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive my sight. 52 And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.
The whole human race fits into one or more of these categories. We would all do well to remember that the next time we think more highly of ourselves than of others! But take heart- that’s why Jesus came…to save us from our sins!
