REACHING OUT to sex workers on the streets of Cambodia, many potential customers drove by. I noticed some of them looking at me. I then realised that I shared many features with my Asian sisters, so to some of the passers-by, I was “one of them”.
This verse came to me, “He was counted with the transgressors.” That night, I realised to a very small extent what it meant for Jesus to be numbered with the transgressors. Jesus didn’t mind being counted as “one of them”. He wasn’t ashamed to be seen with tax collectors, prostitutes and outcasts. Why should I? It’s a small sacrifice and it was worth it.
