While Jesus was having dinner at Matthew’s house, many tax collectors and sinners came and ate with him and his disciples. When the Pharisees saw this, they asked his disciples, “Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?” On hearing this, Jesus said, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”
This week we begin looking at the Kingdom of Jesus — the rule and reign of Jesus. Like other kingdoms, the King leads the way, shapes the culture, and governs the people. But there is no kingdom, like the Kingdom of Jesus. There is no king, like our King Jesus. As Christ followers, our lives will increasingly reflect the unmistakable attributes of Jesus as we know Him more.
