He Left Everything


“Later, as Jesus left the town, he saw a tax collector named Levi sitting at his tax collector’s booth. “Follow me and be my disciple,” Jesus said to him. So Levi got up, left everything, and followed him. Later, Levi held a banquet in his home with Jesus as the guest of honor. Many of Levi’s fellow tax collectors and other guests also ate with them. But the Pharisees and their teachers of religious law complained bitterly to Jesus’ disciples, “Why do you eat and drink with such scum? ” Jesus answered them, “Healthy people don’t need a doctor—sick people do. I have come to call not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners and need to repent.””

Part way through the sermon, the battery in Pastor Mike’s wireless microphone went dead and he finished the sermon with a handheld microphone. Although the handheld microphone could be heard in the sanctuary, it was not picked up by the computer that is used to record the sermons. We apologize that the sermon was not recorded in its entirety.

When you produce much fruit, you are my true disciples. This brings great glory to my Father.
