Jesus is a Friend of Sinners

In our social setting, many times before there is acceptance there needs to be some adherence to some type of code or conduct. Relationally and socially this is how most of us function whether we want to admit it or not. Jesus was different. Jesus befriended sinners. Because of this many people were upset because Jesus was messing up the social structure. But as we see in the life of a "sinner" named Zacchaeus, one meal with Jesus will change everything. What the law could never accomplish, Jesus does in a moment.
