Put People First

We often judge a person based on their appearance. But appearances are deceiving.

Jesus teaches us that none of us can be in good standing with God on our won. We are only saved through him. And this is why we partner in mission to reach the lost: because Jesus welcomes sinners… all of us. Sermon Text: Luke 15
