Jesus Eats With Sinners

Matthew 9:9-13, "Jesus saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax collector's booth. 'Follow Me,' He told him and Matthew got up and followed Him. 

"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 that need a doctor, but the sick. Go and learn what this means, I desire mercy and not sacrifice.' For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners (to repentance)."

When Jesus called you, did you abandon your sinful past and begin a new life in Him? We should not be afraid to reach out to the lost and guide them to Salvation in Jesus Christ. For He is the only Way, the only Truth and the only Life. (John 14:6)
