A sermon from Matthew 9 on prayer, evangelism and Jesus compassion for lost sheep.
A question about fasting gives Jesus the opportunity to teach us about the newness of life he is bringing in comparison to the old system of religion. At the same time, we are reminded of the hope of resurrection we have and given instructions about fasting at this time in history.
Jesus, the one with all authority, eats, and reclines with sinners. But he doesn’t just eat with them, he heals them.
