To what can we liken our human condition?
Isaiah says our condition is like that of a patient in need of a doctor :
Your head is injured, and your heart is sick. You are battered from head to foot—covered with bruises, welts, and infected wounds—without any soothing ointments or bandages. (Isaiah 1:5, 6)
The gospel account written by Mark tells us that the doctor is Jesus of Nazareth:
Healthy people don’t need a doctor—sick people do. I have come to call not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners. (Mark 2:17)
Have you come to Jesus the great physician of the human soul?
