Mark: "A Healing Welcome" Mackenzie Matthews at Timberline Windsor

Series: MARK: Hope, Help & Healing

February 19, 2023 | Mackenzie Matthews

In this message Mackenzie Matthews explores Mark 2.13-17 and the ways Jesus saw and invited the most socially despicable people (tax collectors) to belong with Him. The statement Jesus makes at the end of this account is a profound one: that He came not for the healthy but the sick. This message will challenge you to evaluate how you extend Gods welcome to those you come in contact with and it will encourage you to see yourself righty: a deeply flawed sinner covered in perfect grace.

A Healing Welcome

Mark 2.13-17

Mackenzie Matthews

13 Once again Jesus went out beside the lake. A large crowd came to him, and he began to teach them. 14 As he walked along, he saw Levi son of Alphaeus sitting at the tax collector’s booth. “Follow me,” Jesus told him, and Levi got up and followed him.

15 While Jesus was having dinner at Levi’s house, many tax collectors and sinners were eating with him and his disciples, for there were many who followed him.16 When the teachers of the law who were Pharisees saw him eating with the sinners and tax collectors, they asked his disciples: “Why does he eat with tax collectors and sinners?”

17 On hearing this, Jesus said to them, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”
