29 And Levi made him a great feast in his own house:
and there was a great company of publicans and of others
that sat down with them.
30 But their scribes and Pharisees murmured against his
disciples, saying, Why do ye eat and drink with publicans
31 And Jesus answering said unto them, They that are
whole need not a physician; but they that are sick.
32 I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to
LIGHT from the WORD.
Jesus had called Matthew (Levi) to be His disciple.
Matthew gave a "feast" in honor of Jesus.
And, Matthew invited many of his friends who were
looked on with disdain by the religious leaders.
The "scribes and Pharisees" began to publish
evil stories about Jesus.
According to their "traditions" the truly
righteous were not to be affiliated with SINNERS!
OH! What a PROBLEM with the HEART!!
Jesus affiliated himself with these SINNERS because
THEY were the ones who needed Him for SALVATION!!
TODAY, the world needs Jesus MORE than EVER!!
Christians are given the "ministry of reconciliation!"
How often do you think of yourself as an
AMBASSADOR for Christ?
EVERYWHERE you go, EVERYTHING you are
involved in, should be ENVELOPED in that status!
We cannot have change in the world until Christians
revive the sense of being AMBASSADORS for Christ!
INFECT people with the JESUS virus!
