Jesus calls sinners
John, a great friend of Jesus, wrote when he was an old, old man:
  • How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called the children of God! And that is what we are! ''I John 3:1a''

    That is what we are! We didn't do anything for that one. And if any one of you here right now thinks that you're not qualified, that there's too much junk, too much brokenness, too much darkness in your life, hear Jesus' words. This is what Jesus said:

  • I have not come to call ''that word again'' the righteous, but sinners. ''Mark 2:17''

    He entered Jericho and was passing through. And there was a man named Zacchae'us; he was a chief tax collector, and rich. And he sought to see who Jesus was, but could not, on account of the crowd, because he was small of stature. So he ran on ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see him, for he was to pass that way. And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up and said to him, "Zacchae'us, make haste and come down; for I must stay at your house today." So he made haste and came down, and received him joyfully. And when they saw it they all murmured, "He has gone in to be the guest of a man who is a sinner." And Zacchae'us stood and said to the Lord, "Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have defrauded any one of anything, I restore it fourfold." And Jesus said to him, "Today salvation has come to this house, since he also is a son of Abraham. For the Son of man came to seek and to save the lost." ( Luke 19:1-10)
