Think of all the people Jesus dealt with during His ministry. Some were society’s rejects – the woman caught in adultery, lepers, despised Samaritans, the criminals on the cross. Others were powerful and sophisticated – Nicodemus, Pilate, the Pharisees. They covered the whole social spectrum – but they all needed the Savior; they all were headed toward death and eternity; they all were the objects of His love. Not everyone Jesus tried to turn back from the brink of destruction responded – nor will they with us. But that didn’t keep Jesus from trying – nor must it us.
Remember this: Whoever turns a sinner from the error of his way will save him from death and cover over a multitude of sins.
