I’m currently preaching a series on Robert Schnase’s book, Five Practices of Fruitful Congregations. This week we’re on ‘Risk-taking Mission and Service’ and I’m using Mark 2:13-17 as our scriptural focus.
We come seeking Jesus
our teacher and model for our faith.
We find him at the home of a known sinner
eating dinner with low-lifes and degenerates.
Jesus calls us sinners to follow him
to bring healing and hope to those who need it most.
