Go and learn. . .

“Go and learn what this saying means: ‘I want mercy and not sacrifice.’ For I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”

Matthew 9:13

Christ our Lord, Help us to learn as You commanded them on that day that You desire mercy and not sacrifice, that You call sinners, not those who pride themselves in their own holiness.  Christ Jesus, have mercy upon those who love Your name and call out to You, “have mercy O Son of David on me a sinner. ” May we never be numbered with those who You will resist but those who rely on Your merciful lovingkindness.  Truly great is Your faithfulness. 

Oh Christ, teach a little soul like me.
