Matthew 9:12; I John 1:8-10Matthew 9:12 English Standard Version (ESV) 12 But when he heard it, he said, “Those who are well have no need of a physician,

8 If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
Matthew 9:12; I John 1:8-10
“If I opened a doctor’s shop, and posted in the window a notice stating that I would give away no pills or draughts to men who were perfectly well, nobody would accuse me of a want of humanity because I acted like that. Those who are well have no need of a physician. So, to qualify yourself for being saved, you must first confess that you need to be saved. Come, friend, have you always been perfect?” [Charles Haddon Spurgeon, The Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit XLIII, (London: Passmore and Alabaster, 1897), p. 69]
