"Task, collectors and gentiles. How Jesus always treat tax, collectors and gentiles. Matthews Riding Matthew was a tax collector. Before he encountered, Jesus and Jesus said Columbia Fisher of men with me, Matt Change. Your facebook status. You're going to be an evangelist, but you were attached collector. Remember late nineteen. You don't remember it right off. Hand I. Bet you've saying Luke nineteen. There was wee little man. A wee little man was he members? Kiss climbed up in a sycamore tree to meet Jesus you'll. He was the CEO of the IRS division in Jericho. was implied by Dr Lu. That Zach here's Scott filthy rich by padding to what he was assessing his Jewish countrymen. And then skimming off the top before wiring those funds Jerome. I mean this was not just a tax collector. This tax collector without scruples and yet when Jesus Meets Zach. Do you think he calls them out for his duplicity? Now him by some stuff over dinner. And after Zach and Jesus hang out, drew member Zack's response. I'll give half of what I am to the poor half of what I earn to prison ministry. And to orphans in Uganda. And to feed the homeless here in Charlotte, I'll give half of what I am so happy to trade in my Bentley for a smart car and anyone who mom defrauded all repay them four times what I initially still treat them tax collectors and gentiles remember Genesis Toil. When God says our great great granddaddy Abraham through you, all of the nations of the earth will be blessed. They'll all meet Jesus the promise goes all the way back to the beginning. It's fulfilled in the person of Jesus. Christ Paul said Ma Home Ministry is so that gentiles will come to know Jesus two thirds of the new. Testament is about outsiders being drawn into the unconditional love of our Creator Redeemer. Treat them as gentiles and tax collectors to really think hinton that to be punitive. We use the Bible as the club, and it was never meant to be used as a club. It's true. There are parameters for abundant life in here. This isn't a joke. But it's not punitive. GonNa land in Hebrews. Hebrews Chapter Four. Verse Twelve. Any of you who grew up in church, Holly. The eat could quote this one backwards, because it's one of the first versus that we learned we're growing up. If you've listened to pastor Stephen for any length of time, you've heard this verse. You've heard this whole book. Preach, Hebrews chapter. Four verse twelve for the Word of God is living and active sharper than any two edged sword, piercing to the division of the soul, and the spirit of joints and marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. Again, this is one of those passages I swing my bible around in the twenties. In my twenties, not twenty I'm not that old. But I would use that passage basically to guilt. People into being in a Bible study. And it wasn't until recently that I started really looking at that verse and I thought Oh. My goodness y'all. Let me qualify this because. Probably going to step on some toes I am a Bible banger through and through. I believe in the veracity and the authority of that text from cover to cover God willing I will spend the rest of my life. Talking about what's between those leather bound pages. Love this book. It's not just a book to me. It's life to me everything I've ever needed for life and godliness I find on these pages. It's not a textbook. It's not a rule book. It's not a collection of benign morality tales. This is life thus. But I took that verse out of context and Hebrews. I thought it was all about the Bible remember when Hebrews was written. Colleen you'll know between sixty and seventy between sixty and seventy. One Ha Joel also remember ad. A lot of people think that's after death. It's actually Latin Anno. Domini, the Year of our Lord BC's before Christ. You know they've changed the history books now. And B., C. is now BC before the common era. And instead of it, being Ad Anno Domini Year of our Lord at sea, coming era, just slow, little side note. Interesting how everybody's trying to throw Jesus out of history and yet Jesus is the foundation of the history of hope. Anyway wit written between sixty and seventy ad between sixty and seventy. There were very few other epistles New Testament pistols. We would now call books being circulated the very first collection, loose collection of most of the New Testament books was in two hundred, the very first formal collection of all twenty seven New Testament. Books is in three, sixty seven. I think ad that was by And a half and I think something anathemas or NFL or something some mix of those terms, and then it was formally canonized into the very first New Testament, the Council of Hippo in three ninety three Ad do all those boring historical facts me. Means that right here when this pastor is encouraging his sheep, because his sheep like us, really tired. His sheep like us we're running out of hope. And he said I want you to remember. That Jesus Logos Greek Jesus. That word is used in John. One in the beginning was the word the word was God and word was with God. This is before we had instant traded texts. HE SAYING JESUS IS SHARPER THAN A. Short Sword Jesus knows the motive of your heart and Jesus knows you. Hook Jesus it's all about Jesus Ya whom we segregate the God who loves us from inscription and taps. It becomes punitive. Who realize this is all about Jesus? This is the generational well from which we can draw hope in the driest season you look back and go. Our Creator Redeemer has always been in process. Of restoring the dignity that has been stolen from us of redeeming the mistakes that you made oftentimes against each other. I can't even mentioned Hebrews without thinking of something that happened recently I was. Speaking at a conference for people who were in addiction recovery from addiction conference, and I have never struggled with with alcohol or drugs or opioids, but I identify as a recovering addict. Because one of my favorite theologians, a guy named Dr Ed T. Welsh, wrote a book called. Banquet in the grave and in that book, he said that all addictions are ultimately a disorder of worship and other words. If you don't put Jesus and the biggest hole in your soul, you'll run to the wrong things the wrong people so I thought I'm at home with these recovering addicts. and. It was on a Friday night and it went through Saturday Friday night. There's this woman during worship who came up front and this church wasn't quite as Wigley as we are here at elevation, it was a little more a little less demonstrative, and so she was the only woman upfront, only person up front. And she was completely oblivious..
