Sermon Notes

Jesus knew what it felt like to be unwelcomed.  John 1:10-11

During his ministry, Jesus made a priority of welcoming everyone—but particularly . . .

  •  Those Considered Unimportant.  Mark 9:36-37, 42 & Mark 10:13-16
  •  Those Considered Unworthy.  Mark 9:9-13 & Luke 19:1-10
  •  Those Considered Inconvenient.  Luke 8:43-48

Welcoming a person in the name of Christ means letting them know you value a relationship with them, and that they are worthy of your time, attention, compassion, and acceptance as a child of God.

This week, don’t miss your opportunity to welcome someone!
