This Sunday we kick off with our New Series:
Jesus I Am.
This Week We’re tacking the Topic of Jesus I Am… A Friend of Sinners
Jono, Tim and Sharon chat about how Jesus was a friend of sinners. Our culture has been having an interesting conversation around sin – not that people use that little 3 letter word. But as a nation over the past week we certainly had a conversation around sin, judgment and mercy. This Sunday we are going to explore what Jesus might have to say about sin, judgment and labelling.
9 As Jesus went on from there, he saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax collector’s booth. “Follow me,” he told him, and Matthew got up and followed him.
10 While Jesus was having dinner at Matthew’s house, many tax collectors and sinners came and ate with him and his disciples. 11 When the Pharisees saw this, they asked his disciples, “Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?”
12 On hearing this, Jesus said, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. 13 But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’[a] For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”
