Luke 5:27-32

We all have an “us” group and a “them” group in our lives. Who are the people in your life that you view as others? Pastor Tony Pyle challenges us to look on those who are different with compassion rather than condemnation. No one is beyond the hope of the Gospel, and just like Jesus, we are to go toward the people that our culture has rejected.

After this, Jesus went out and saw a tax collector named Levi sitting at the tax office, and he said to him, “Follow me.” So, leaving everything behind, he got up and began to follow him. Then Levi hosted a grand banquet for him at his house. Now there was a large crowd of tax collectors and others who were reclining at the table with them. But the Pharisees and their scribes were complaining to his disciples, “Why do you eat and drink with tax collectors and sinners?” Jesus replied to them, “It is not those who are healthy who need a doctor, but those who are sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.”
Luke 5:27-32

For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.
Mark 10:45

What convictions and beliefs have separated people from one another over this past year? Has that impacted you in your faith? How so?

Who are the people in your life that you see like the Pharisee’s saw the tax collectors and sinners?

How did Jesus live his life with his community of disciples? How was he different than the religious leaders (Pharisees and Scribes) of his day?

What would it look like for us to live our lives like Jesus did? What is a step you can take to move toward the “Them’s” in your life?
