Do you feel sick in your spirit? Return to Jesus in the sacrament of confession. He is waiting to restore you to wholeness - Daily Bible Reflections January 18,2014

WHAT IS GREATER
THAN SIN?
 
“Those who are well do not need a physician, but the sick do. I did not come to call the righteous but sinners.” – Mark 2:17
 
Lisa felt a gnawing pain on the right side of her abdomen but she ignored it. When it became unbearable, she asked to be taken to the hospital. The doctor immediately operated on her appendix and she recuperated in a few days. The doctor said, “If you hadn’t come to the hospital, you could have died because a burst appendix would have poisoned your blood.”
       A lot of people die a little each day spiritually because of the weight of their sins. Some of us, for fear of God’s anger and shame for our failures, wait until the pain of our sins becomes unbearable before we turn to the Lord. We are afraid that He will not accept us because we have sinned greatly. On the contrary, Jesus assures us, “I did not come to call the righteous but sinners.” His love for us is greater than all our sins combined. It is not His desire that the sinner should die but that he may live.
       Our Divine Physician lovingly calls us back to Him again and again, no matter how many times we fall and despite the grievousness of our sins. We can trust in His Divine Mercy, a love so great that Jesus died on the cross for us. “Because of His wounds, we are healed.” Marjorie Duterte (marjorie.travels@gmail.com)
 
Reflection: Do you feel sick in your spirit? Return to Jesus in the sacrament of confession. He is waiting to restore you to wholeness.
 
Lord, I am not worthy that You should enter under my roof, but only say Your Word and my soul shall be healed. Amen.
 
St. Charles of Sezze, pray for us.
