There’s a difference between the way other people see us – “He deserves our help … ” (Luke 7:4-5) – and the way we see ourselves – “I don’t deserve you to come into my house” (Luke 7:6). In the searchlight of God’s  holy Word, we are taken more deeply into ourselves – seeing our sin as it really is. Jesus doesn’t save us because we deserve to be saved. He saves us by His grace. He looks at us, sees what we’re really like, and keeps on loving us. This is love, real love, the greatest love of all.
