Do you ever feel like you don’t belong here? Matthew 9 unveils essential truths about how Jesus views those who were considered societal outcasts, offering a fresh perspective on their worth and significance.

Jesus’ love for sinners: Despite criticism from religious leaders for associating with sinners, Jesus’ love for them shines through. His mission was to seek and save all that would come to Him in repentance.

The divine call to sinners: Jesus not only loved sinners but also called them to follow Him. Matthew, a tax collector despised by society, responded to this call. Jesus offers forgiveness and a fresh start to anyone who chooses to follow Him.

Recognizing our sinfulness: Self-righteousness can hinder recognizing our need for God’s grace. Some of us attempt to redefine sin to suit our lifestyles, thereby avoiding the need for repentance.

This message highlights the importance of acknowledging our sinfulness, embracing repentance, and placing our faith in Jesus for salvation. The same call that transformed Matthew’s life extends to us today.

Lord, help us continually see ourselves in the light of Your holiness, acknowledging our sinfulness and need for Your grace and forgiveness. Give us the humility to repent and turn to You in faith. May we extend forgiveness, just as You do for us. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
