Who Do We Want in the Church?

Read the Bible in a year by reading Luke 15:1-10 today.
Tax collectors and sinners went to Jesus to hear Him. Praise God! They were the very people who needed to hear Him! Not everyone liked that idea, “And the Pharisees and scribes complained, saying, ‘This Man receives sinners and eats with them'” (Luke 15:2). They complained because the physician received patients! I guess they liked the decorating of the doctor’s waiting room, and they liked going there for discussions, but did not want sick people hanging around!
Friends, what is religion? The religion of Jesus Christ is to bring spiritually sick men and women to Him. If that is the case, what kind of people shall we see gather with Jesus? Are you prepared to see some wild people come into your congregation?
