The One Who Calls Sinners to Repentance

The One Who Calls Sinners to Repentance! Luke 5:27-32 Main Point: Jesus, the Messiah, has not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance! 1. Jesus calls Levi (Matthew), a despised tax-collector, to follow Him and he immediately follows! (verses 27-28) *Have you heard Jesus’ call and immediately followed Him?! Matthew 4:19 2. The Pharisees criticize Jesus for hanging out with tax-collectors and sinners at Levi’s banquet (and not them!). (verses 29-30) *He wants to spend time with the likes of you and me! Matthew 11:28-30 3. Jesus answers that He has come for those who know they are ‘sick’ and ‘not righteous’ and call them to repentance. (verses 31-32) Repentance = ‘a change of mind, prompted by a change of heart, resulting in a change of life.’ A turning from self and sin, and turning to God through faith in Jesus Christ. Do you know that you are sick, and not righteous, and have you turned in faith to God for healing of your sin-sickness?
