Lost Things

Posted in Jesus, tax collector, parable by LifeSpringChurch on March 31st, 2019

The parable on which this sermon is based is about the loss of a single coin from a woman's dowery.  The parable was told by Jesus in response to criticism that the religious leaders were aiming at him for associating with the "wrong" people.  It's a telling statement to the church of Jesus about what he expects us to be doing in regard to the lost, alienated, and disenfranchised.

Why does he eat with sinners?

This sermon is taken from Mark 2:13-17.  It is about the way in which Jesus deliberately sought out people who were sinful, hungry, rejected, and curious rather than the satisfied members of the religious elite.  This sermon is about including the unincluded.
