Topic: Default Passage: Mark 2:13–2:17
Title: Friend of Sinners
Text: Mark 2:13-17
-Following Jeus is a decisive act. When Jesus calls, we can't respond with half-hearted commitment.
-Matthew: Gift of God
-Jesus saw a man in Levi, and knew what type of man he could become.
How do we respond to unbelievers?
1. Like Pharisees-separated from the world around us?
2. Life Sadducees-accomidating and compromising to the world around us?
3. Like Zealots-pursuing political power to further our moral agenda?
-None of us are pharisees philosophically, but we often are pharisees practically.
-Jesus is teaching that we aren't supposed to isolate or assimilate to the world around us. Jesus sends us out into the world on Mission.
-John 17:15 "I do not ask that you keep them out of the world, but that you keep them from the evil one."
