Calling All Sinners
Passage: Mark 2:13–2:17
Anyone who is forgiven by Jesus follows Jesus, and the one who does not follow Jesus has yet to see His forgiveness. (Titus 2:11-4) As we see Jesus call His disciples, it is noteworthy that the only requirement to follow Jesus is to be a sinner who acknowledges his/her sin.
- Jesus calls the greatest sinner. (Mark 2:13-14)
- Jesus forgives the greatest sinners. (Mark 2:14)
- Jesus associates with the greatest sinners. (Mark 2:15-17)
