"The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, 'Look, a glutton and a winebibber, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!' But wisdom is justified by her children." - Matthew 11 V19
"for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost." - Luke 19 V10
Jesus Christ during His ministry on earth spent most of His time with sinners and tax collectors. He preached the gospel to the sinners, those who were poor in spirit and acknowledged that they needed a Saviour. The self righteous and religious leaders of that time rejected the teachings of Jesus and were ashamed to follow Him. Even today, the message of the gospel that salvation is available through Jesus Christ, and Him only, is not very popular. Many do not believe they need a Saviour, but Jesus' strategy is the same, He sends His followers to those sinners who are in need of a Saviour. Have you received Christ into your heart? The message has come to you and it's up to you to make the decision. Praise be to God!
"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
