Scripture: Luke 5:30

April 1/2, 2017

What is the best party you’ve ever been to?

“Tax collectors and other notorious sinners often came to listen to Jesus teach. This made the Pharisees and teachers of religious law complain that he was associating with sinful people—even eating with them!” Luke 15:1-2 (NLT)

Jesus Calls Matthew to follow him

Matthew throws a big party and invites all his “sinner” friends

Jewish leaders complain, “Why do you eat and drink with such scum?” Luke 5:30 (NLT)

Jesus: “Healthy people don’t need a doctor—sick people do. I have come to call not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners and need to repent.” Luke 5:31-32 (NLT)


1. See people the way Jesus sees them
2. Invest and Invite: take the time to develop friendships
3. Make this Church a safe place to hear a life-changing message

“In the same way, there is joy in the presence of God’s angels when even one sinner repents.” Luke 15:10 (NLT)
