Jesus hosted dinners for sinners. The Scribes and Pharisees wondered, What are you going to do about sin? Jesus had a strange attitude toward sin. He hated sin and was attracted to sinners. He referred to them as the lost. He told the Pharisees about a shepherd who found a lost sheep and rejoiced a woman who found a lost coin and rejoiced and a Father who found the heart of his sinful son and rejoiced But the boys older brother refused to rejoice. He was lost. If you love the lost, surely you dont desire their endless lost-ness? If you do, perhaps youre lost? What does God the Father do about sin? He lets us And then He ambushes us with a banquet of Grace.
