"When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance" Mark 2:17.
As a believer know why Jesus came; he came not to call righteous men, but sinners to repentance. If all were just, then Jesus wouldn’t have come to preach repentance, to secure their salvation, forgiveness and healing of their souls, but he came to seek and to save the lost.
We are to show love to the lost souls, remembering that Jesus came also for them; he said "the Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord." Luke 4:18-19.
He came for the poor, the brokenhearted, the captives, the blind, the bruised, and to preach the acceptable year of the Lord. He came for the poor in spirit.
"And John calling unto him two of his disciples sent them to Jesus, saying, Art thou he that should come? or look we for another? ....Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel is preached. And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me" Luke 7:18-23.
Jesus said, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: , you know when your soul is sick - he’s the greatest physician with the power of healing in himself for you, to heal every form of ailment, sickness and disease.
How is it that he eateth and drinketh with publicans and sinners?
It’s so that he may make them whole spirit, soul and body.
In Matthew 20:30-34 are two blind men sitting by the road. When they heard that Jesus was passing by, they cried out, "Lord, have mercy on us, Son of David!" The crowd demanded that they keep quiet, but they cried out all the more, "Lord, have mercy on us, Son of David!"
Jesus stopped, called them, and said, "What do you want me to do for you?" "Lord," they said to him, "open our eyes."
Moved with compassion, Jesus touched their eyes. Immediately they could see, and they followed him.
You can cry also in like manner, and Jesus will say to you, I will. be thou made whole.
