Are you a friend of sinners? Do you spend time with persons who do not know Christ, whose lives may be offensive to you, and whose reputation among “good people like us” is an embarrassment and even a scandal? Do you love sinners, care for sinners, reach out to sinners, and serve sinners? Are you—am I—a friend of sinners? Are you—am I—like Jesus?
Sermon Text – Mark 2:13-17
The Greatest Enemy to Compassion is Self-Righteousness!
