Prayer for the Self-Righteous

Today the Luke passage we read reminds us of the dangers of self-righteousness. Not only do we look ridiculous, we ignore the very people who need to experience the righteousness of Jesus, the Christ. Maybe we should keep this prayer close,

It’s not my brother or my sister but it’s me, O Lord: standing in the
need of prayer.
We are so warm in our own self-esteem that we freeze
the folks around us.
We get so high in our own estimation that we stand
isolated on a mountain top of self-righteousness.
That is why You came:
Lord Jesus: not to save the lecherous but to turn the righteous to
And it is me, O Lord. (from Where Freedom is Laughter)

Jesus invites people into his life and his way. He takes what is and points to the new way of the Kingdom of God.  Come see what this journey is all about!

One way to think about the mission of Jesus - He calls into question the way things are and points to the way things may be in the Kingdom of God.
