Room for Something New

Luke 5:27-39

Jesus is on a mission to bring good news to the broken, but not everybody approves of His methods. In Luke 5:27-39, the Pharisees have two major beefs with Jesus: the company He’s keeping and His breaking from their tradition related to fasting. Jesus’ response to their objections gives us incredible insight into who He is and why He came. If we intend to not “miss” Jesus like the Pharisees did, we better pay attention!

“Want to get a Christian angry? Get them around people who sin differently than they do.” – Phillip Yancey
