Jesus came to call sinners to repentance

Jesus came to call sinners to repentance
               
I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.” Luke 5:32 (NIV)

Those who sit in darkness get to see the light, not those who think they are in the light already. Jesus came to call sinners to repentance, not the righteous (Luke 5:32).

This does not mean that there are some who are righteous in themselves.

It means that He saves only those who confess their darkness and admit their need of His light.

Do you understand your desperate situation apart from God’s grace?
