Rearranging our Schedule for People

For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost. – Luke 19:10 The Gospels reveal a Jesus who is constantly rearranging his plans for people. He made time for children when His disciples said He had no time for children, (Mark 10:13–16). Jesus made time for a Pharisee in the middle […]
