Jesus healed a paralytic in Capernaum, and when He passed on from there, He saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax collector’s booth, said to him:

“Follow me!”

At Jesus’ word, Matthew got up and followed Him without hesitation. Matthew prepared dinner for Jesus at his house, where many tax collectors and sinners ate with Him. When the Pharisees saw this, they asked Jesus’ disciples:

“Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?”

On hearing this, Jesus said:

“I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”

The tax collectors were hated and despised because they collected taxes from their fellow Jews for the Roman Empire. Being treated as sinners, they were all objects of contempt. However, Jesus ate with those who were despised and ignored. Of course, Jesus knew that the Pharisees would blame Him, but He was with them for only one reason—to call the sinners to repentance.

God, the perfect being, was insulted and despised on the earth because He was with sinners who were treated with contempt. In order to save us, sinners, Heavenly Father and Mother have come in the form of sinners and are with us, going through all kinds of suffering in our stead.

    It is a great blessing to meet God.

    Am I worthy of God’s endless love?
    We have no qualifications or reasons to receive God’s love.
    Although we are just prisoners on death row for a crime that deserves death, we give eternal gratitude to God Elohim for taking pity on us and giving us endless grace.
    Thinking of the love and grace I have received from God, I will become a worker of the New Covenant gospel who finds and cares for my lost brothers and sisters.

    It’s inspiring how Jesus chose to spend time with those who were looked down upon, showing that everyone is worthy of love and redemption. This reminds us that true compassion means reaching out to those who need it most, regardless of societal judgment. Just as Jesus called sinners to repentance, we are reminded of the immense love and sacrifice made for our salvation.

    It is common to hang out with people of the same status. At the time, the Pharisees would have thought it strange that Jesus was with tax collectors and sinners. In their opinion, if Jesus was a true savior, he should have eaten with noble people such as Pharisees, priests, or teachers of the law. However, Jesus, who came to this earth to call and save sinners, not the righteous, was always with the sinners who were despised by people. In this last age, God the Father and God the Mother came to this earth in the flesh to bring salvation to these sinners. With grateful heart for God’s immeasurable love and grace, we should strive to preach the gospel of the New Covenant and lead sinners to repentance and return to God.

    Let’s remember that God the Father and God the Mother have come to this earth for our salvation and repay them for their grace.
