#5: The Unwelcomed Guest
The Unwelcomed Guest
(Luke 7:36-50 )
Jesus came to embrace and empower the poor, the sick, the lame, the outcast, and the lonely. Throughout his entire life and ministry, we see story after story of his connection to, and community with, those who were rejected and marginalized for one reason or another. None of their “otherness” ever seemed to make a difference to Jesus. He simply brought the good news of God’s kingdom to those who most needed to hear it.
Come join us this week as we look at the story of the woman who was an unwelcomed guest to the home of Simon the Pharisee. In Luke 7:36-50, Jesus gives us a clear picture of love and restoration without judgement.
