I’m not saying that sin is ok. But it seems that to truly love sinners like Jesus loved sinners, that we must love them in the midst of their sins. Sometimes that gets messy, making the religiously folks uneasy and making us appear as “worldly sinners”.
Welcome to the world of following Jesus!
Over the next three weeks with the Columbia Church of Christ, we’ll be exploring from the Gospel of Luke what Jesus was doing that got him accused of being a “glutton and drunkard” as well as a “friend” and “guest” of sinners.
- Sunday, April 22nd: “A Glutton and Drunkard” (Luke 7:31-35)
- Sunday, April 29th: “A Friend of Sinners” (Luke 15:1-7)
- Sunday, May 6th: “A Guest of Sinners” (Luke 19:1-9)
The sermon series title is “He What? …Jesus Hung Out with WHOM?
I always look forward to preaching/teaching about Jesus Christ and the mission he calls us to follow him in. Since Jesus was in trouble in these passages it means that I get to see what sort of trouble I can get myself and others into…:-). Any ways, I’ll be posting recordings of the sermon on my blog under the “Columbia Church of Christ Sermons” page on this blog.
