"I have not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance." ESV
Jesus did not come to earth to rescue people who see themselves as sufficiently righteous with no need to be saved from anything. Those are the people Jesus condemned as having a religious spirit and He just left them to their rotting prideful lives. Jesus came seeking those who were sorely aware of being trapped in sinful lives and of needing a way to get free. Jesus will answer the call of anyone who acknowledges their sin and who reaches out to Him in faith.
Heavenly Father, how great is Your love to us that You would seek us out to free us from our sin. We pray that You will use us to reach others by our actions and words, that they will see their need for salvation, and put their faith in You. In Your name we pray, Amen.
