Matthew 9:13

13 But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”

According to this passage, I came up with an equation – "God has not come to call the righteous, but the sinners," thus all we called are sinners. If this equation stands, then who's there to judge me? And who am I to judge? We are all sinners, and we are all equal.

At the end of the day, all that matters is our heart. At the end, we want to be able to present our hearts to God with confidence. It doesn’t matter what kind of ritual we perform, how loud we sing the worship songs, or how high we lift our hands in the air, none of these matters if our hearts are not at the right place.

Moreover, this passage once again shows God’s great love. While Jesus knew He's gonna be the greatest sacrifice to redeem our sins, still He desires mercy on us. He doesn't want us to suffer, not 1% of what He was going through.
