Friend of Sinners: Why Jesus Care More About Relationship Than Perfection (Study Guide)

Rich Wilkerson (Jr)

$13.99

Paperback
:

In the Bible, we find that Jesus was called a lot of names. Many of the religious leaders of the day were jealous of his success and wanted to discredit him in the eyes of the public, so they said all sorts of crazy things about him. They whispered that he was an illegitimate child. They accused him of being demon-possessed. They denounced him to the Roman authorities as a rioter, a threat to public peace.

However, in this five-session video study (DVD/digital downloads sold separately), pastor and author Rich Wilkerson, Jr. reveals how one of their nicknames for Jesus was true: "Here is a ... friend of tax collectors and sinners" (Luke 7:34). In the religious leaders' minds this was one of the greatest indictments imaginable, but for Jesus it was a sign of success because it was the very definition of his mission. Today, Jesus still calls us "friends" not because of who we are or what we have done, but because of who he is. While he was on earth, he knew that people needed to belong before they would want to behave. He understood that the power within him was greater than the darkness around him, so he loved fearlessly.

Rich shows that by following his example, we can have the same clear conviction and compassion for the lost that Jesus did. His gospel of scandalous grace cannot be overestimated. When we embrace the truth that we all need Jesus equally and when we trust him to bring transformation in people's hearts, we will walk as Jesus walked, experiencing the glory of God in our own lives and in the lives of those around us.

Sessions include:

  1. Missed Message
  2. Weight Shift
  3. Lost and Found
  4. Comfortably Uncomfortable
  5. How to Be Great

Designed for use with the Friend of Sinners Video Study (sold separately).
