Jesus was always hanging out with the ‘bad people’. The religious who followed Him around couldn’t grasp why Jesus would hang out with prostitutes, tax collectors and sinners.
Jesus not only hung around with sinners but he sought them out, He looked for them! That’s good news for you and me, sinners in need of a gracious and merciful Savior.
One of my favorite examples of “Jesus, friend of sinners” is the story of Zacchaeus as told in Luke 19:1-10.
