Jesus And The Lost

In today’s lesson we see Jesus choosing Matthew the tax collector to be one of His disciples (Matthew 9:9-13), and then later going to the home of the tax collector Zacchaeus (Luke 19:1-10).

In both accounts He is criticized for His association with sinners.

How  does He explain His actions in Luke 19:10?

How can we follow Jesus’ example in these accounts?

One Response to Jesus And The Lost

    Jesus said that He came to seek and save the lost. Although other people who saw this referred to Zaccheaus as a sinner, Jesus referred to him as a saved son of Abraham. We can follow Jesus’ example by reaching out to those others may have dismissed as unworthwhile.
