"But go and learn what this means: 'I desire mercy, not sacrifice.' For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners."
— Matthew 9:13 (NIV)
God desires humbleness, submission, compassion, right action, just behavior, all stemming from an authenticity — the condition of the heart.
Without heart, all that's left is sacrifice, and Jesus didn't come for sacrifice — He was the sacrifice — He came for the heart.
A person who sees their own wrong, they see that they're a sinner. If that person is you, look up and be blessed.
"For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners."
—Luke 5:32 (NIV)
Your heart searches for mercy, and if you accept, God is there to give you grace.
"On hearing this, Jesus said to them, "It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners."
— Mark 2:17 (NIV)
