Prerequisite for Salvation

It is perplexing to His contemporaries that Jesus did not come to call the righteous as did all other religious leaders to date….

Matthew 9:12-13
“But when He heard it, He said, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. Go and learn what this means: I desire mercy, and not sacrifice.’ For I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.”

Jesus proclaimed that the only prerequisite to salvation is that one be a sinner, admit it, and repent of it.

Lord take me when I am used up, but use me until I am taken.
