JESUS: THAT ONE MAN YOU CAN RELATE WITH

'And when the scribes and Pharisees saw him eat with publicans and sinners, they said unto his disciples, How is it that he eateth and drinketh with publicans and sinners?' - Mark 2 vs 16 {KJV}

'And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said unto him, Zacchaeus, make haste, and come down; for to day I must abide at thy house. 
And he made haste, and came down, and received him joyfully. 
And when they saw it, they all murmured, saying, That he was gone to be guest with a man that is a sinner.' - Luke 19 vs 5 - 7 {KING JAMES VERSION}

'And one of the Pharisees desired him that he would eat with him. And he went into the Pharisee's house, and sat down to meat. 
And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee's house, brought an alabaster box of ointment, 
And stood at his feet behind him weeping, and began to wash his feet with tears, and did wipe them with the hairs of her head, and kissed his feet, and anointed them with the ointment. 
Now when the Pharisee which had bidden him saw it, he spake within himself, saying, This man, if he were a prophet, would have known who and what manner of woman this is that toucheth him: for she is a sinner.' - Luke 7 vs 36 - 39 {KING JAMES VERSION}

'For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, He hath a devil. 
The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners. But wisdom is justified of her children.' - Matthew 11 vs 18 - 19 {KING JAMES VERSION}

  • They grumbled saying, why does your Master eat with sinners
  • He went to Zacchaeus' house
  • The prostitute came to Him
  • He associated with the publicans (tax collectors) who the people hated because of their fraudulent extortion from them
  • He drank wine with sinners

Beloved, the Lord Jesus is your go to person, He knows exactly your struggles and weaknesses, He has a perfect understanding of your humanity. Don't run from Him anymore because of your sins; He wants to be involved in your life, let Him in! Zacchaeus' fraudulent business didn't stop Him from having a meal with Zacchaeus and spending the night in his house - though the people murmured and complained about that, Jesus didn't care. This Jesus, you need Him! I tell you, you really want to know Him. Let Him into your life, there's no judgment nor condemnation in His person.

Think on these words.

God is with you.
