Luke reported the feast that Levi made for the Lord Jesus in...

He (Jesus) went out and saw a tax collector named Levi, sitting at the tax office. And he said to him, Follow me. So he left all, rose up, and followed him. Then Levi gave him a great feast in his own house.
Luke 5:27-29.

Luke reported the feast that Levi made for the Lord Jesus in his house. When Jesus called him, Levi left everything, his work and his habits, to follow Him. The first thing on this new pathway was a feast for Jesus. People of all kinds came to this feast, which was in honour of Jesus.

The self-satisfied, religious Pharisees (whose name means “separated”) wouldn’t think of eating with people who failed to observe all the details of the law of Moses. They protested, “Why do you eat and drink with tax collectors and sinners?” Jesus replied, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.”

Jesus’ answer cast an unexpected light on His mission. His aim was to save and cure those who were ill. People who imagine they are in good health think they do not need a doctor. Those who are ill go to one.

This also applies to the realm of faith. The first step to a meeting with Jesus is knowing that we are ill, i.e. being aware our wrongdoings and moral fallibility. The second is trusting Jesus to grant forgiveness and righteousness and deliver us from judgment. Then, like Levi, we share the joy of knowing Jesus with others: an invitation to a meal, reading the Bible, and praying. Let us ask the Lord to open doors for us.

Today’s reading: Hosea 14:1-9 · Proverbs 1:8-19

VICTORY OVER ENEMIES II

Paul in Philippians 3:10 prayed earnestly:
“That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;”
One wonders what prompted the apostle to pray this type of prayer! It may be, as we shall shortly see, that he...More

The cliché “a God of love” who shows leniency...

Our God is a consuming fire.
Hebrews 12:29

The cliché “a God of love” who shows leniency regarding the shortcomings of so-called “good people” (if they indeed exist) is commonly used. In an absolute sense, however, it is incorrect.

It is true that God has revealed Himself as...More
