Sermon: Luke 7:36-50
When we think of Jesus, we expect a Teacher, and we get a Saviour. We expect a loan-shark and He forgives us freely. We expect that He’ll burden us, instead He says “This is my body which is given for you… This is my blood which is shed for you.” We expect that He’ll take from us, instead He gives Himself to us – even to the point of death. We expect a throne of judgement, instead He takes the judgement on the cross and, to us, He opens up a banqueting hall. He says, “Welcome! Come in, come one, come all, come sinners and feast with me.
