THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
A woman came home to find her husband in the kitchen, shaking all over.
Coming from his waist was a wire, and she assumed he was being electrocuted.
Quickly, she grabbed a knife and cut the wire.
Her husband turned and asked, "Honey, why'd you do that?"
She answered, "I thought you were being electrocuted."
He took headphones from his head, and said, "This is a walkman! I was dancing!"
And the Pharisees and scribes murmured, saying, This man receivethe sinners, and eateth with them.
WHO is this the elite riducule?
He is God incarnate; the Eternal Creator Who "became flesh and dwelt among us."
WHY is He ridiculed?
For receiving sinners and communing with them.
What majestic LOVE!
For what reason does He receive sinful men?
That He might forgive, cleanse, justify and regenerate their souls.
"For as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become sons of God." (John 1:12)
Jesus takes us from being sons of sin to being sons of GOD!
He pardons and welcomes.
He places upon us His own robe of righteousness.
He seals us with the signet ring of His Holy Spirit, preserving our souls.
He makes us ambassadors of His peace and love.
He prepares for us a great supper, where we will commune with Him forever.
Sing the anthem: CHRIST RECEIVETH SINFUL MEN!!
Let us pray and labor that sinful men might receive HIM!
