View The World Upside Down

 ” Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick.” Matthew 9:12

We know that Jesus Christ sought the lowly who were rejected by others.  He didn’t view the world as we view the world.  No, in fact His view to me was an upside down view.

If we are to take winning a lost world to Christ, we too must view the world in the same way.  Instead of seeking out those with resources who can do us favors, we look for those with few resources that may not have anything to offer us in return.  Instead of those with seemingly great strength, we find the weak. Instead of those who are healthy, we turn to the sick. Instead of those who are spiritual, look to the sinful.

Isn’t this how Jesus reconciled the world to God? Isn’t that how He reconciled you and I?  Its not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick.  Yes, Jesus came for the sinner, not the righteous.

To gain a new perspective, may we all strive to look at this world with an upside down view, just as Jesus Christ did.
