Mark 2:17 always stands out to me when I read it, On hearing this, Jesus said to them, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners. God has not called us to be in community only with other believers. While we do not want to be negatively influenced, we must always strive to be influencers on others in an effort to positively impact this world. God gives us strength and protection if we follow and trust in Him. But if we try to do it alone, we will ultimately fail without the power of His protection.
