Who Are You?

I desire mercy, and not sacrifice. For I came not to call 
the righteous, but sinners. from Matthew 9:13 

Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, 
and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28 

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. 
No one comes to the Father except through me." John 14:6

Jesus, aware of this, withdrew from there. And many followed him, and he healed them all and ordered them not to make him known. This was to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah:

Behold, my servant whom I have chosen,
my beloved with whom my soul is well pleased.
I will put my Spirit upon him,
and he will proclaim justice to the Gentiles.
He will not quarrel or cry aloud,
nor will anyone hear his voice in the streets;
a bruised reed he will not break,
and a smoldering wick he will not quench,
until he brings justice to victory;
and in his name the Gentiles will hope.

Matthew 12:15-21/Isaiah 42
