Jesus Calls Matthew, The Tax Collector | Week 17

There’s a dangerous game being played. It’s the belief that following Jesus is a lot like Simon Says. Do this and do that. And if you don’t do it, you’re out. But the truth is, God is not in heaven trying to trick you to get you out. And being with Jesus isn’t a list of do's and don’ts. The reality of following Jesus is a profound relationship with God. No games. God wants all of us to have a relationship with him, even those who are rejected in society. Learn how Matthew 9 unpacks the story of Jesus calling a man hated by his own people and what Jesus is looking for in those who follow Him.
